After years of keeping our gaming rigs cool with its fans, Zalman's decided what we really need is a monitor with true 3D capabilities.Rather than the sophisticated tech used in Philips 3D TVs, Zalman is relying on a tried and trusted method – 3D specs.Thankfully they're not the cardboard red and greens of cinema yesteryear. Instead a pair of wraparound shades with faintly tinted lenses do the job of plumping out the on-screen action.Word is that they're the business with World of Warcraft (pictured). Zalman's own testers report no ill effects after two hours of continuous play.With the 19-incher expected in at around $500 by June, they could be the bargain bucket answer to more sophisticated 3D displays.
