# Linux traditionally needs the DIN 3-pin connector found on the high end Quadros and [http://www.nuvision3d.com/the60gx.html NuVision] or [http://www.reald-corporate.com/scientific CrystalEyes] stereo glasses. The cheapest (2014+) Nvidia Quadro with 3-pin DIN Stereo connector is the K4200 (http://www.nvidia.de/object/quadro-desktop-gpu-specs-de.html) which starts at ~ €700.

# The currently (2013+) most affordable NVIDIA 3D Vision solution on Linux is to buy a monitor with built-in IR emitter (such as BenQ XL2420TX or ASUS VG278HR), and a cheap Quadro, e.g. (2013) the FX380 or (2015) K420. The latter has a Dual-Link DVI and a Displayport outlet, so can drive the stereo monitor, and an additional monitor. This solution avoids the USB/3-pin hassle altogether. See below for xorg.conf! GeForce cards (instead of Quadro) ''do not give openGL Quad Buffered Stereo'' on Linux (on Windows neither).
