I'm planing to buy a 3D monitor. So, i want to know whether i can see 3D as well as 2D in this monitor.

I mean, when i watch a 3D movie play a 3D game, i want to use 3D mode (with glasses). And.... when i play 2D games or use the PC for other miscellaneous 2D purposes, i need to use 2D mode (without glasses).

Can i do both of these stuff using this 3D monitor?

Pleez! PLeez! PLez! Someone tell me...

Yes, typically a 3d monitor just has higher refresh rate and the emitter for the glasses if needed (this is all dependent on which 3d tech you are talking about). But a 3d monitor will show 2d stuff fine. Although it would help next time to know what you were planning to buy. There are some 3d monitors with built in 3d also, I don't recall how they work off hand, but they will still do 2d iirc.

Yes, you need the kit unless you get a monitor or video card bundled with the 3d glasses. This newegg link is the monitor bundle WITH the glasses.
