Hi Joern,

   The Chimera developer who knows this best, Greg Couch, is out today. 
  But in the past he has said that Chimera requires a Quadro card to 
work with the Nvidia lcd glasses because only the quadro cards support 
stereo-in-a-window that Chimera uses.  We have those glasses with a 
Quadro card and some version of Windows and a 120Hz Samsung flat-panel 
monitor and the stereo is the best I've seen -- bright and no ghosting. 
The non-quadro cards do only full-screen stereo used by video games.
