Wow 60 fps Ultra 3D and Blu Ray 3D 120hz Dual Projector

Hey everyone,

My wife and I do only really 2 things, watch shows/movies and play WoW together. My dream setup i'm working on over the next couple months is a full Dual projector 3D rig. I don't want to go overboard, but i want to make sure i can both watch Blu Ray Movies @ 120hz on each monitor (love smoothing), and play WoW Ultra (or close to) 60fps 3D.

I know WoW is more CPU dependent, i assume Blu Ray Movies are as well. Would an over clocked core i5-3570k and two Medium-high end Dual Radeon HD graphic cards do nicely? or do i really need a beefy setup (say dual HD 7800 series + core i7 3770k) to be able to power things?

Thanks, i searched but could find very little for dual projector 3D with smoothing for blu ray.

    I'm no expert but I don't think you need an SLI/Crossfire setup here if the only game you plan on playing is WOW. I would spend the saved money on one single better GPU and upgrade to an i7. I'm not even sure WOW supports SLI so a compete waste of your hard earned money. Check this out for yourself though in depth, only had a few mins to scan the forums..

    Thanks, I"m starting to think that indeed will be the case, since i doubt 3D blu ray will require much Graphics power, maybe if i can find a dual core single card that's beefy so it can handle the 3D nicely...

    now if only i could get someone to tell me if 24p projectors are any better for blu ray than normal projectors, i like smooth, and i can't imagine anything being smooth at 24 fps even if there's no pull-down.
  3. If you get a TV setup like that, and want 60 FPS in 3D while gaming, you will be limited to 720p, so the power may not be needed for GPU as much as you may think.

    If you want to play at 60 FPS @ 1080p, you'll need a monitor. 3D Vision would be my recommendation, which means an Nvidia video card. However, if you really want AMD, you'll have to live with reduced resolutions, or get a used Samsung 700/750/950 model monitor. I think the discontinued their 3D active displays. No one ever has them any more.

    A passive system may work, but text would be brutally bad, and for WoW that would be a big deal.
  4. Thanks for the help all, i think i'm going to switch directions a bit, there aren't any 1080p 120hz projectors really in any price range i can do, so it will be dual 1080p 60hz projectors, which should be fine, i'll take true 3D over smoothing. With dual projectors though ByStander you won't get the text blurriness i believe as non dual monitor passive systems are only half the the vertical frames, but as long as lined up properly the dual projector system should be nice and clear :)

    That is how the movie theaters do it. I don't know if you'll have issues with software support, but I imagine Tridef would support it, if it is easily supported.
