Ok, we need some information. I am running Windows 7 with a blue ray DVD, it has an LED monitor. What do I need to watch 3D DVDs?
Please help.

First off you'd need a monitor capable of 3D, if I'm not mistaken.

Second off, from everything I know, you'd also need a video player that supports it as well.

IIRC LED TV's require 240 Hz to properly run a 3d video.

/edit... A little search on Newegg found this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236262

Prices for 3D at Newegg pretty much go up from there

nvidia.com has lists of compatible monitors. You will need a 3d Monitor/TV (btw 120HZ is adequate, not perfect) and glasses.

I do have such a setup(40" 3d Sony TV came with glasses)and honestly seldom use that function. I would fire it up for a good 3d-Blu-ray movie though.. Such as the hobbit when it comes out. Tested it on "Cars". It worked but the movie still stunk.
