I'm not sold on this soley for XIV, but there have been a few games and movies that I'd like to use with 3d. The entry price isn't as rediculous as it used to be on the PC platform. Recently released though is IMO a game changer from Asus.
For those whose rigs will already run XIV at an acceptable level, or those with a few extra bucks to throw at a system they are builing... here's a 3d option.
I've been leaning towards a 120hz monitor for a while, but so many of them were under 20"s. If I'm going to replace my current monitor then I want to move up! So the Asus offering fits the bill of being 120hz, has a dicounted 3d vision bundle, and is 1" larger than my current Samsung.
The only 2 things I really don't like about this is the resolution, I would have prefered a larger aspect ratio, but 1080 is acceptable moving from 1680x1050. And then there's the glossy screen. In my current room it's not an issue as the lighting is pretty dim, if I move though, my game room layout will be dependant on the lighting of the room.
Any way, in conclusion I thought I'd share what I think is an acceptably priced 3d ready vision package.
*EDIT* Here are a few other monitors I had considered in the past
The Samsung doesn't offer anything other than 120hz over my current monitor, but may be a good buy for some others.
The Acer seems a good deal until you read the multiple dead pixel reviews and see that Acer owuldn't honor the warranty unless there were more than 4 dead pixels. That's a definate no purchase for me.
