Hi, GamerGirlAlice. You wouldn't know until you try it.. :)

3D watching and/or gaming is a nice option for the more commonly used 2D.
I prefer watching movies that have 3D mode rather than those that haven't.
There are some games I like to play in 3D (e.g. COD Black Ops and MW3, Battlefield 3).
I wish NBA 2K12 was playable in 3D but it's not..
I haven't played Final Fantasy IV and WOW, so no comment for them.

All G74 3D versions have Bluray drives in them.

It's optional for the non-3D versions.

the place i was looking at it at was amazon and specks aren't very specified on it. http://www.amazon.com/Republic-Gamers-G74SX-DH71-17-3-Inch-Gaming/dp/B005PAJI4Y/ref=wl_it_dp_o_npd?ie=UTF8&coliid=I22TH6K4W15BZT&colid=2CVW03LEKIDHR its actually a very small listing on it which seams unfare for people looking for systems like this.

Yes... but so is any ROG MoBo w/3d setup and a good 120/240 monitor/tv ..... build. hahahhaa

Watch the models... not all are 3d... lots of models.. be sure you are buying what you think
you are buying..........

surya..Welcome... this is probably converted junk .. if discs work ... id say its a bad download.c.

That's the non-3D screen G74SX-DH71. If you want the one with the 3D screen, get the G74SX-DH73.

lol it wasn't even the 3d one. what do u think i can get in to a rog notebook that can play the 2 games i play in what i call eye candy mode. how much do u think it would set me back. i am thinking i may order from powernotebooks.com and was wondering what settings would be the best since i am a multimedia more then a gamer, but like as may graphic features i can get. 3d is nice but to much a pain because i where glasses. so basically what would u all recommend for bluray movies multimedia and gaming with my simple games in eye candy mode???

@surya: A possible reason why you are seeing "double-vision" while watching 3D movies is that
the video player is not recognizing the movie in 3D mode. One explanation is that the movie/s
came from a different "Region Control" from the region where you're in. For example, I can't play
a 3D (bluray) movie from the North American Region because my video player is set for the
Asian Region, and vice-versa. So what I need to do is to re-set the Region Control in the Settings
of my video player.

@GamerGirlAlice: :) I'm not too sure what you meant by "eye candy mode".
One thing I'm sure, though, is that all versions of ROG 15" or 17" G Series would be able
to play your preferred games. But your preference and budget will determine which particular
G Series you'd buy..

Well, what do you know?.. Sometimes I use 3D with the 3D glasses on top of my eyeglasses!..

Ggirl.. any offered with the 1920X1080 that fits your budget (i have seen them for about $1100 up to the customs)
will do the job...modestly stated..to say the least..really..the very least.

Pilgrim- hahah ++ for one thing..you know what its like to play
3d in 3d with 3d glasses over glasses -- you got me there friend...ahhahhaa..
but all sound advice..c.
