Exclamation No DVI?!?! 3D

Hello, I have the BENQ XL2410T a which can support a DVI cable, but the problem is my computer doesnt have a OUTPUT for a DVI cable and the DVI cable is the only way that will be possible to run 3D, how would I be able to connect one too my computer. I already have all the 3D compatible equipment (Monitor, ZOTAC 460, 3d Nvidia KIT, Windows 7) and it is driving me crazy that I can't get this to work out, could someone please tell me a method of getting a DVI cord to work with my computer, thank you!

You would need to purchase and install a video card with a DVI or HDMI OUTPUT, not input as you indicated.

Lol thank you for telling me I changed it :P, do you know any nVidia cards that have DVI OUTPUT and are 3d compatible, and isn't there some sort of a device to change the cord into a different port?

There are some available although I am not familiar with the model numbers. As for a device to change from VGA to DVI or HDMI, I am not sure that would work even if there is something available. You need a video card that can process HD and 3D that has the proper digital output port.

The graphics card says it is NVDIA 3D compatible so there has to be some sort of a way to get this to work out.. would there be a 120hz refresh rate from a HDMI cable?

120Hz refresh rate is a function of the TV/display ONLY in an attempt to make up for the slowness in which the LCD crystals can respond (motion blur). It has nothing whatsoever to do with a HDMI cable, no matter what you have been told.

Did that help?

I know the newer 400 and 500 series from nvidia have dual hdmi output with a mini hdmi output as well. Also a few others would suffice - here is a reccomendation
