NVidia 3d vision & 75hz

Here is a very simple question that could save me alot of money :P.

nVidia says you "need" a 120hz monitor to use their 3d solution.

I understand its needed in order to have your good 60hz per eye, but as the 1900x1080 120hz monitors simply can't be found under 500$, and considering I already have a very good 1900x1080 75hz monitor, i was wondering if it was possible to get these 3d glasses to work on a refresh rate lower than 120hz, even if its not optimal nor recommended.

Thanks you very much :)

  1. 75/2 = 37.5
    If you don't care about your eyes then sure!
    Crysis & RTS games are probably the only games that can get away with that framerate, and you're graphics card still needs to pump 75FPS normally.
  2. well i actually meant: is it physically possible to do it? i would eventually upgrade to a 120hz monitor once the price settle down but i don't want to buy the 3d vision and being told: "Iam not even going to try running 3d because your monitor isint 120hz" by the drivers/software.
  3. i think the break off point for the NV 3d is 100Hz

    Can i ask you where you found this info? 120hz screens are very pricy right now and i won't make a move without some official source :P
  5. May I ask what games you play?
    nVidia's 3D works even less than Eyefinity, in fact about 10% of Eyefinity's success rate.
  6. I don't want to start some nvidia-ati war, i just bought a gtx260. I know ati cards are performing better right now but i am not interested with eyefinity even if it's an awesome product. I need cuda and 3dvision for personnal development, wich is why iam wondering if i really need to buy a 400$+ 120hz. If i could go with my current 75hz acer i could wait until the 120hz screen prices go down.

    Right now i play mostly starcraft (won't work in 3d as it's built with sprites), dragon age, mw2 and crysis. But i spend far less time gaming that codding. I know the 3d vision is pretty experimental but stereoscopic is within my field of study.

    Since CoD4 & WaW work well then you can hope MW2 works.

    Crysis does not work, I don't know if new drivers fix it though.
  8. thanks for the info! I think ill just wait for a good deal and jump on it. I will probably drop the 1920x1080 reso for 1650x1050, the extra 100% increase in price for 50 additionnal lines just isint worth it. I should also get a small fps increase by decreasing the reso anyway.

    And about crysis, its been shown at gdc 2010 that cryengine 3 will support stereoscopic gaming :)

    I disagreee, if the graphics card fails to pump 75FPS, it will still display the left and right frames alternatively at 75 and you will only see a frozen 3d image.
  11. 75Hz is posible at medium setting with Texture on High. 3Dvision is a good experience, so there is no need for extreme setting to play at 75Hz. I vote go for the 75Hz 22" full HD monitor. I will do the same since 37fps is good enough to play anygame in my experience, exception is counter strike the only place where you really need 60fps to play hard, aim fast and kill fast. Just thing about strategys game playing at 30fps like command & conquer 3, and will understand 30 fps is good enoug to play, or just remember the time you play with vertical synchronization ON and you play that game at 30fps without problems. wont be to much diference, but it will decrease the time you take to aim at a enemy inside game for sure.
