So, I was intrigued with the concept of 120hz display (not talking about TV, for those of you who are looking at previous topic) and 3d. My question(s) is, what is the difference between the regular 3d 120hz monitors that are sold (with or without glasses) and Nvidia 3d and AMD HD 3D? I looked it up which lead to even more confusion where people said you can use any 3d 120hz monitor for NVidia 3d and/or AMD HD 3d, but then I found these lists that say only certain monitors work:

If someone can explain these 2 questions, I would greatly appreciate it. Again, I have no plans for 3D, it's more a knowlege-based question.
Gaming Laptops are so underrated...smh

3D is a gimmick. NVidia's version is ok. The AMD version is a joke. 2D to 3D conversion is another option, but it's also not great.

Edit: I have a Nvidia 3D ready monitor, but it does not work with AMD HD3D.

Er, there isn't one necessarily.

nVidia's 3d solution requires a certified 120hz-capable monitor. Some of these are sold along with the 3d Vision package (Shutter glasses + emitter) but not all.

If you go AMD your choices are a lot more limited and support's a lot more spotty.

Your gonna end up dropping big cash on a 3D setup and realizing the headache/eye strain isn't worth it in the long run.

Wait for the Oculus Rift to get your immersive fix. The effect will be much better than a 3D monitor.
