Since Avatar (Avatar Theme) there is quite a hype about everything 3D. The latest NVIDIA drivers for Windows 7 include 3D Vision and the most popular MMO World of Warcraft supports 3D Vision since patch 3.08! This is a detailed guide that will show you what equipment you need for 3D Vision and how you can watch 3D movies and images on your PC without expensive 3D glasses.
New NVIDIA cards support 3D Vision and 3D Vision Discover.
You don’t need much equipment to try out 3D Vision Discover, you only need some equipment if you are going for the high-end solution 3D Vision.
NVIDIA 3D Vision vs. 3D Vision Discover
If you don’t want to spend $199 on a 3D Vision Kit, you can simply get one of the normal 3D glasses that you know from the cinema theaters (red/cyan anaglyph). You probably have one at home, they are often included in magazines. NVIDIA recommends their specialized NVIDIA 3D glasses (they are bundled with specific NVIDIA graphic cards and you can also get them on NVIDIA events), but that’s just a trick to get more sales.
With some glasses and a new graphic card you can get a feel for 3D gaming. If you like it, you can then decide if 3D Vision is something for you or not. After all $199 is a lot of money for the 3D Vision Kit and if you are not into 3D as much as you thought you were, you wasted a lot money.
According to NVIDIA their glasses are custom-designed, specialized anaglyph (red/cyan) glasses, but it works with a normal one as well.
3D Vision System Requirements
Let’s go through the checklist and find what you need for 3D Vision:
- NVIDIA 3D Vision Kit (Optional, for true 3D Vision)
- 3D Vision-Ready Display (Optional, for true 3D Vision)
- Compatible NVIDIA Graphics Card
- PC With Microsoft Windows Vista or Windows 7
3D Vision Ready Display
In order to enjoy 3D vision, you will need a 3D Vision-ready display. There aren’t that many 120 Hz displays on the market, but you can also use your HDTV for this.
120 Hz displays:
1920×1080 Desktop Displays

Not just a super car that carries on the name of racing driver Pierre Veyron, who, while racing for the original Bugatti car manufacturer, won the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1939, Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is the second fastest car and costliest too.... in the world and the most powerful, it can easily pass as a super hero`s car like Batman. It has the fastest acceleration speed, reaching 60 mph in 2.6 seconds.
Endowed with W16 engine-16 cylinders in 4 banks of 4 cylinders fed by four turbochargers, a dual-clutch DSG computer-controlled manual transmission, the Veyron has a length is 4462 mm (175.8 in) a wide of 1998 mm (78.7 in) and hight of 1206 mm (47.5 in). Counting a sum of 10 radiators, for the engine cooling system, for transmission oil, a heat exchanger for the air to liquid intercoolers, for engine oil etc., the car has a power to weight ratio of 529 bhp/tonne.
If we talk about performance we are dazzled by this supercars power to reach 200 and 300 km/h (124 and 186 mph) in 7.3 and respectively 16.7 seconds, wining for herself the name of the quickest-accelerating production car in history. If we count the fact that the top speed of Bugatti Veyron is 253.2 miles per hour (407.5 km/h), a speed limited electronically to prevent tire damage (it can run even faster) we can understand why this spectacular car must consume 40.4 L/100 km (4.82 mpg) when it`s running at top speed and in city driving 24.1 L/100 km.
A model drove by superstars like Tom Cruise, couldn`t name itself cheap, rising the Bugatti Veyron at least of $1,700,000, a price that measures it`s quality. Many new designs has been released since 2006, the color might have changed, but the speed and power remain the same.
For centuries the propheres of Nostordams have been part of historical record while highly specularities and controversial their author’s legacy endures Nosterdam,who lived in 16th century has made himself to predict the future that could create hazard to human.He had suggested future like famine,Tsunami,Global warming, economic crisis nuclear threads. He also predicted 2012 will be the end of the world. All the above mentioned words are found in “The last book of NOSTORDAMS”. Mayans and Egyptians also suggesting the same as Nostordams said. Most scientists believed that if we stand in harmony and hope 2012, DEC 21 will be the beginning of the new age............
