With the advent of 3D and development of my MT table I was thinking of implementing 3D into the device in the future.

I was wondering If I had a 3D capable graphics card would I be able to display 3D graphics on standard LCD/LED/Plasma display or would I need a certified 3D display?

I'm hoping its able to be displayed without the premium priced 3D displays since that would cut costs and help with productivity since LED and Plasma displays are not suitable for LLP MT displays. hopefully I can just buy a 1080p 42'' LCD and use it as a 3D MT surface

To get 3D graphics you need a monitor that can display 2 x 60hz outputs, in other words a 120Hz display....

Nvidia cards can use anaglyph images to create a 3D effect in quite a number of games. All you need is a set of glasses with coloured lenses. Works on standard displays. Don't know if this will help at all.

Ok, cheers to both solmiester and dave.

Are you talking about 3D where it jumps out at you, or just 3D modelling as in CAD etc?. If the later, any monitor will do and most graphic cards, however for rendering, you can use Direct Compute from AMD Radeon cards and CUDA with nVidia

I was referring to the "jump out" 3D, so i'll go find a display capable of 120Hz.
