    So I posted this question on the official apple support forum and nothing :p anyways, My idea is this; buy the nvidia 3D vision, install windows 7 (since the nvidia 3D vision is windows only) and buy a 3D capable monitor, and I should be able to play games, view content in 3D. After doing research, I found that the nvidia Geforce 9600 GT is supported, however i found no indication that the nvidia Geforce 9600M GT is supported. My question is this, technically speaking should my plan work, or is the difference between the Geforce 9600 GT and 9600M GT significant enough to alter my idea. Any and all thoughts are welcome. Thanks.

    My macbook pro is running the following:

    Snow leopard
    2.66GHz Intel core 2 duo processor
    4gb memory
    nvidia Geforce 9600M GT

    If it doesn't mention support for the 9600M, it's just not supported. Someone may hack a driver in the future, but that's highly doubtful I'd say (3D gaming is a very small niche as it is, let alone 3D gaming with mobile hardware).
