Not to long ago I brought a Samsung 7000 Series 3D TV along with 4 3D glasses. I was wondering if I can play some Nvidia 3D Vision ready games such as Resident Evil 5 and many more with out buying their glasses. Is there a way to installed the software for their glasses without their glasses because pressing the 3D button on the remote that changes 2D to 3D does not have that good of a quality to it as some that are built for 3D. Thanks and I hope I did not confuse you.

"3D Vision" by definition is a proprietary standard over 2 DVI cables and requires special Nvidia certified monitors, so you can't use "3D Vision". However, if your card supports HDMI 1.4, you should be able to output 3D at 1080p48 or 720p120. Only the newest cards support the standard, so I would check to make sure your card supports it first before proceeding.

My TV is connected to my video card via HDMI, but how do I know it is 1.4 and if it is how do I output it in 3D. Thanks

What video card do you have? That is the crucial information.

The GTS 250 only supports HDMI v1.2, so it definitely won't be able to output 3D over HDMI. However, I also wouldn't suggest buying a new GTX400/500 series card that supports HDMI v1.4 without consulting others because while I know that it can output blu-ray 3D over HDMI, I'm not 100% sure about games.

Doesn't the 7000 series have a 2D-3D conversion built into the hardware?

It might, but I am strictly talking about being able to output it to that TV, and since the TV does not support Nvidia's dual DVI implementation of 3D vision, the 3D data would have to be transmitted over HDMI v1.4.

^^ Which (to my knowledge) the 7000 series does not support. I think his only option is to use the TV's internal conversion from 2D to 3D, which probably adds significant overhead (delay) to processing.

Hence why I'm staying away from 3d until someone puts out a unified standard.

I did try converting 2D to 3D and it works fine, but it is far from games and movie that are built for 3D
