Use DVI-D, only output that can support ultra fast 144Hz refresh rates, thats unless you even go 144Hz.

AOC monitors are a great choice, offering quality and affordability.

You missed one thing, what size were you wanting?

A website you wish to buy from would also help.

Thank you for the quick response. My initial size preference would be like 23-24 inches since my initial plan is using a single monitor only. Though I am open to suggestions.

There is no wide range of 3D monitors for sale here in our area. Sometimes I visit this site to canvass for monitors and other components

Best from easy PC (price wise);

Best from PCX (your needs);
http://pcx.com.ph/peripherals/monitor/aoc-23-d2357ph-3d...

The PCX one is much more expensive, but it is the best, with 3D capabilities and 3D glasses, a great choice.

I don't think easypc offers 3d Monitors haha. Now that I have a monitor, what things should I prepare? I am thinking for this build which is all from easypc

Intel Core i7-4770K Processor Socket 1150 3.40ghz 8m 15,200.00
Msi Z87-gd65-gaming Motherboard Socket 1150 Pcie Ddr3 10,150.00
Asus GTX 770 DirectCU II OC 2gb-256bit Pcie Ddr5 18,500.00

will this components support 3D gaming and 3D movies?

yep, good thing you have a Nvidia card, as AMD don't support 3D vision as no glasses are available for their HD3D Technology, a waste for them!

Your system is 3D set and capable, enjoy!

yes 120Hz is better, but for the price of the AOC, the 3D and overall experience is best for the price. 120Hz 3D monitors are really expensive!

good question, I don't know, you may have to stick to just 3D glasses if you can.

You can wear 3d glasses over or under the regular glasses. I do it that way and find no trouble in doing so. Just a lil bit load is felt over your nose after watching 3 hours movie. Lol. . .


Right! I am doing this when watching 3D movies in our local theater. I was thinking if this 3D glasses comes with something that you could just clip on your prescription glasses. I know i heard of it before, I think in passive 3D they offer those?
