and the 3D craze continues.  from the article (which requires registrattion so here's the whole thing thanks to bugmenot)

Quote
Hot on the heels of Sony's 3D gaming launch  for PlayStation 3, NVIDIA is attempting to introduce what it calls the '3D PC.'

While its specifications for 3D PCs do not include any hardware that was not previously available, its focus is on selling bundles of a base unit with a compatible graphics card, 120Hz monitor and active-shutter glasses. Sony's 3D Bravia TVs will also be suitable.

A number of hardware manufacturers, including Dell, Asus, Toshiba and Alienware, will provide suitable systems. Online UK retailers Mesh, Scan, Overclockers and Novatech will feature a new 3D PC category on their consumer sites, selling complete systems as well as 3D-branded components.

Prices for desktop bundles start at around 1500, reaching as high as 3400. 3D-capable laptops are planned for the initiative, but are not available as yet.

While several 3D solutions are available, NVIDIA is keen to posit its GeForce GPUs and 3D Vision glasses as a leading option. Though arguably less elegant to set up than on console, 3D gaming is currently rather more ensconced on PC, thanks to a variety of official and unofficial modifications to many recent games.

they dropped the price on their 3D glasses today, making it $149, and they also updated it so it lasts 40 hours now on a single charge.

3D is the biggest gimmick in my opinion.  I love how Nvidia's drivers screwed up The Witcher 2 performance until you removed the 3D driver.  *sigh*
