I went ghetto and downloaded the 3D driver for my Nvidia videocard 1GB GTS250 OC and used the glasses from the movie Coraline and I tried it with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and it looks SICK!! You can see the rockets from the rocket launchers fly by. I also tried Left 4 Dead and it's INSANE!! Zombies look great coming at you....don't spend your money on this EXPENSIVE hardware...go ghetto.

A 9600GT is similar in architecture to an 8800GT, being a G94 vs. a G92 core based product.  The 8800 has 112 stream processors and the 9600 has 64 (I think I remember this as the main difference), however these 64 have been tweaked to be more effiecent, so it's barely slower than an 8800.  I think the 9600 might also have a bit faster core clock.

If they ever do get 3D like this it will have to be "CHEAP" and easy like the red on the left the blue on the right. I fell for this once years ago nVidia 3D glasses had driver issues game issues. They can forget selling me on this carp.

I saw this at the CES this past january and the article doesn't mention that the 3D system doesn't work with ATI video cards.  At least, that what I was told.  As someone using an ATI 4870, I'm not about the shell out $500 plus another $250 for an Nvidia card just for this 3D.

Not to be curt, but, uh... duh?  Aside from the technical aspects of the glasses, in that they use use Nvidia drivers as the hook to achieve the effect, do any of us here honestly believe that Nvidia would go out of its way to support its technology on the competing platform?

Especially when ATI's cards are too bad, either. I would rather make my technology only compaitable with my technology, then give enthusiast out there to use my gear on another platform.

It should work, when they says that an "8800gt or better" they mean any card with a higher number.

If only nVidia had some sort of scaling system to accomodate those who don't work for nVidia and don't understand their branding process.

for instance ATI 4870 < ATI 4870 X2

Logic says 9600gt should be better than 8800gt because it's a higher number but it's not thats just the way nVidia does things to sell more cards.

out of the 9 series Nvidia cards, the closest to the 8800GT is the 9800GT (which is basicly just a rebranded card)... and no, your not a noob for asking, its a good question :)
