Hello everybody, I just bought a new Nvidia Graphic Card and I tested Crysis 2 on stereoscopic 3D with my anaglyph glasses ( with red and blue/cyan) and it looks quite impressive... the problem is: the colors are strange and are not the same as playing without 3 D.
Now I ask, what glasses should I wear for realistic color rendering?Or do I need other hardware?Thanks.

Unless you have a 3D monitor or TV its going to look shit in my opinion.

you will need 3D montiors of 120 HZ , or a 3D TV with Active 3D glasses , they give best results .

there are THX 3D Verified Displays , the best :)

:)  who said not good :)  ?

It is IPS and looks nice , but not 3D..

3D needs 120HZ , this is 60HZ , and forget 3D for cheap price , they suck :)

Actually, there are IPS 3D monitors (not the one listed), but they are not 3D Vision, not 120hz and they are not active displays. They are passive, which means every other horizontal row will not be visible in one eye or the other. They make text look really blurry, and essentially halve your resolution when in 3D.

Ultimately, you'd be best off with a 3D Vision 2 monitor with Lightboost, for near zero motion blur at 120hz, or 60hz full 1080p in 3D Vision.

It sounded like you didn't know, because you said it required 120hz and not all 3D requires 120hz.

I was talking about the best ones .. the true 3D that needs 2x60hz Full HD each ..

Here is a list of 120hz Lightboost monitors, which are all 3D Vision 2 capable, though some need the 3D Vision 2 kit to work. These are the best for your video card and I'd recommend switching video cards if you didn't have an Nvidia card already so you could use them:

LightBoost 120Hz Monitors
...has the LightBoost strobe backlight that can eliminate motion blur, see LightBoost HOWTO
- ASUS VG248QE ....... 24″ 1920×1080 144Hz
- ASUS VG278H ....... 24″ 1920×1080 120Hz
- ASUS VG278HE ....... 27″ 1920×1080 144Hz
- BENQ XL2411T ....... 24″ 1920×1080 144Hz
- BENQ XL2420T ....... 24″ 1920×1080 120Hz
- BENQ XL2420TX ....... 24″ 1920×1080 120Hz
- BENQ XL2420TE ....... 24″ 1920×1080 144Hz
- BENQ XL2720T ....... 27″ 1920×1080 120Hz
- ACER HN274HB bmiiid ....... 27″ 1920×1080 120Hz

My card is GTX 770 , I suppose it could work.

It will work. That is what that list of monitors is designed for. Nvidia Geforce cards, which the GTX 770 is. Most the 144hz versions require a 3D Vision 2 kit, just find out if the monitor has a built in emitter and glasses or not.
