LCD Monitor Upgrade

I have been sporting a pair of 24” monitors for quite a while now- one was even purchased from CompUSA when it was still in it’s prime.  They are sport a wonderful 16x10 aspect ratio (1920x1200) instead of the newer 16x9 aspect (1920x1080) so I have been resistive to give up my 120px of vertical screen real estate. 

But today I finally gave in- and also upgrade to 3D as well…

I purchased a set of an Asus VG236H 23” Monitor Kit VG236HE 23” Monitor from amazon.  Both are 23” 120hz 3D ready panels, but the former item includes an nVida 3D Vision kit.  I am skeptical about the 3D part as it still seems very gimicky, but it might me fun to try out World of WarCraft or Age of Empires to see how it looks in 3D.  nVidia has an extensive list of games that are supported with nVidia 3D vision, but- sadly- the original Dungeon Keeper II is not among them…

I am more interested in the 120hz refresh and the 2ms response time- and the reviews have been pretty positive on NewEgg (unless I get a dead pixel or a green line on the screen).

The monitors are shipping 2nd day from Amazon (gotta love Amazon Prime!) so I should have these guys setup on Wednesday- and then I will either be wondering how I lived with 60hz monitors or cursing nVidia for being near blind from ‘3D Vision’.
