#  I am using the combination you are asking for with alienware monitor. The driver I am using is 195.30 beta. It works very well. Quality is much much better than Zalman and somewhat better than CRTs.

# I have Nvidia 3D vision running on the Samsung SyncMaster 2233.  One note of caution, for the Quadra FX3800 if you are using dual monitors I haven't found a way to get TwinView to work with the Nvidia 195.30 beta linux driver.  You can configure for 2 X-screens to drive the two screens as a work around.  This is most likely a 3800 problem since the 3800 has 1 DVI and 2 HDMI outputs instead of 2 DVI outputs.  If you are looking for a new graphics card as well and like dual monitors I would stay away from the Quadro FX1800 and FX3800. The Nvidia 3D vision quality is better than Zalman but the Zalman glasses are much lighter if you do a lot of stereo.

Follow up question:  Is your Nvidia 3D vision emitter connected via the 3-pin DIN or USB?  The Nvidia 3D vision emitter I have only connects via USB and I could not get this working under linux.

# To me, the currently (2013) best NVIDIA 3D Vision solution on Linux is to buy one of the monitors with built-in emitter from http://www.nvidia.com/object/3d-vision-displays.html (we have the BenQ XL2420TX), and a cheap Quadro, e.g. the FX380. The latter has a Dual-Link DVI and a HDMI/Displayport outlet, so can drive the stereo monitor, and an additional monitor. This solution avoids the USB/3-pin hassle altogether. Make sure to use 'Option "Stereo" "10" ' and 'Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" "Off" EndSection"' in xorg.conf! We found that using a GeForce card instead of Quadro ''does not work'' on Linux.
