I can personally verify that the new Nvidia 3D Vision system on 120 Hz LCD
monitors and a Nvidia Quadro FX Video Card display stereo flawlessly in
Pymol, Wincoot,  UCSD Chimerica, and any other application that uses OpenGL
or Direct3D as its display media within both Windows Vista and Windows 7
(Nvidia documentation says it will also work in Windows XP, but I have not
tested this).  This will not work in any Linux distributions yet (as far as
I am aware), but here's to hoping they develop the drivers soon.

Here are a few links:
