Do I have to buy nvidia 3d glasses or can I use others?

So I just built a rig with a GTX560 Ti, and we have a Sony 3d compatible TV. Of course neither the TV or the GPU came with the glasses so I was just wondering if I could buy Sony 3d glasses (which are cheaper) or do I have to buy the Nvidia glasses to play 3d games on the TV?

  1. No you need Nvidia's glasses. Go here to see if your specific model TV supports 3D vision: http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-displays.html

    Yes you can... Nvidia has a utility for any 3D set up. I just downloaded it and I am using it with my Visio HDMI TV and the polarized glasses that came with the TV. It is working great... was a little difficult setting up, because you have to have the TV in the 3D mode when it is setting up. But I figured it out. You can use it for 30days free... and does not require Nvidia's glasses or system, just Nvidia video card, a 3D ready display, and 3D content... $39.99 All it is is the drivers to run the 3D on systems not using the Nvidia glasses.

  3. Alternatively, you can usually use HD3D software with Nvidia cards. Tridef 3D works.
