[Chimera-users] hardware stereo question

I am interested in computer visualization, computer modeling, and 
crystallographic software for teaching and research at The College of 
Wooster.  We are going to replace our five-year old cluster of Silicon 
Graphics machines in the near future.  We are considering a cluster of 
PCs with either Windows or Linux, or Macs with OS X.  The big stumbling 
block for us has been figuring out what is the best hardware platform 
for three-dimensional stereo viewing.  Our current Silicon Graphics 
machines have the Stereographics Crystal Eyes viewing system.

Is there something newer, better, or less expensive than the 
Stereograhics Crystal Eyes viewing system that is compatible with PC or 
Mac?  Or is the Crystal Eyes still the best system for Chimera and 
other molecular modeling and computer visualization software?  
Stereographics sells a CrystalEyes Workstation (either Windows/Linux or 
Mac) that looks attractive.

I would appreciate any advice you can offer.
