Thanks a lot Jacob,

Good to know. Does it work out of the box ? Anything I should take care of ?
Do you have the NVIDIA 3D kit or do you use some other glasses and emiter ?


P.S: I get perfect, flickering-free stereo with the FX3800, dual
monitor, external stereo connector and Display Port DVI Dual-Link
adapter (but NOT the simple adapter)
