Hey People im new here so to get started with the forum i will ask a question Today my Dad called me and asked me if he will have to buy a Blu Ray if he has a 3D Projector and my Pc which has a Nvidia gt520 with 3D Option and i wasn't really sure and my question to you lot is will i need a blu ray player if i have a 3D Projector and a 3D Graphics Card? and also if i will not need a Blu ray player please could you recommend a good 3D Projector and what glasses i will need to use with it and one other question if it works without the blu ray player will every movie and everything on my screen be 3D i will need to buy or download a Special 3D movie? Please tell me how this works because he has been dreaming about a 3D home cinema he now has a normal 300" Projector but thats not enough he need a 3D Projector now so i would be very greatfull if any one could help me Thanks.

Regards

Adrian

According to the NVidia 3DTV Play web site, I don't see that your graphics card is 3D capable.

In order to watch 3D content on a 3D projector, you will either need a 3D Player (not your computer) and a 3D projector, or upgrade your computer so that it will play 3D content (again, according to the specs I linked, your GT520 is not capable), purchase the 3DTV Play software from NVidia, and purchase one of the 3DTV Play compatible projectors on the page I linked above.

When you said "3D Player" did you mean Blu ray ? so it will go like this The 3D wil come out of my Pc Go to the Blu Ray and it will go inside to the projector and the projector wil release a 3D? if this will go like this why dont they just do something that will go straight from pc to Projector?

No. 3D does not necessarily mean Blu-Ray, but I don't know that there are 3D DVD players. I think they may be just normal DVD Players and you just need to polarized (red/blue) glasses to view the 3D content.

In order to watch Blu-Ray discs, you will need a Blu-Ray player (either in your PC or a stand alone device). If you want to watch 3D Blu-Ray, you will need a 3D capable Blu-Ray player (again, either in your PC or a stand alone device).

If you want to watch 3D Blu-Ray movies from your PC through a projector, you will need:

1) a 3D Capable graphics card (again, your GT520 is not on Nvidia's supported list).
2) the 3DPlay TV software; purchased from NVidia and installed onto your computer.
3) Blu-Ray player software from companies such as CyberLink, Arcsoft, Corel or Roxio.
4) a compatible 3D Projector (compatible projectors are listed on the 3DPlay TV web site)
5) 3D glasses compatible with your projector (one pair for each person watching).
6) a high-speed HDMI cable (I think meeting HDMI 1.4 standards).

Hope this helps.

And you also said that gt 520 does not have £d Vision but when i go on statup type in 3D it says Turn on Nvidia 3D Vision and when i put it on my screen goes 3D and setup comes up but i dont a 3d monitor or projector yet so i cant set that up..

No, I said no such thing. If you have a 3D Blu-Ray, you can watch non 3D movies, but only in normal 2D mode.

I said that your graphics card is not listed on the system requirements page for 3DPlay TV, which is required for playing 3D movies from your PC to a 3D capable projector.
