To (hopefully) clarify...

I don't know if this card fits what is needed for sequential stereo. :(

Having read the Chimera documentation online, I don't know if the 
interleaved approach is ideal for people working together in a group 
("This works well for a single viewer.").  Is this still true with newer 
monitors (wider angles, etc.)?

Since we have the money (big spillover from last year in a grant, and we 
need to spend it quickly) (tough situation, right??), I figured to go 
ahead with the sequential approach.

But if not the nVidia system, what then?

Of course, the passive glasses approach might still be best, as it seems 
that people couldn't move from screen to screen (seeing others work) 
without switching glasses.  ???

Hate the idea of losing resolution though.  The students may not 
recognize the difference, of course.

Heh.  Still feel out of the ballpark.  Maybe the same city??

In a completely rational society, the best of us would aspire to be
*teachers* and the rest of us would have to settle for something less,
because passing civilization along from one generation to the next
ought to be the highest honor and the highest responsibility anyone
could have.     - Lee Iacocca
