Default Does the 6870 support 3D?

I have a 6870 PowerColor and a LG D2342P-PN
This is a 3D ready monitor
I've had a play round with the 3D settings but can't get it to work
I'm using DVI, I figured it would work because HDMI and DVI are identical signals
Thanks for any advice

IIRC you need an HDMI 1.4a capable monitor or a Display Port monitor. With HDMI 1.4a in 3D you can game at 720p 60FPS, but at 1080p you are limited to 24FPS unless you use Display Port.

To game you also need the IZ3D drivers.

Same thing as I said. You need a 1.4a capable projector and any Radeon card capable of 3D will work long as it matches your other card for Crossfire.
