[Chimera-users] Stereo 3D on non-quadro GeForce cards

I have not confirmed this, but I've read that Windows 8 supports 
stereo-in-a-window with recent NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics 
cards for applications that use Direct3D.  It is unknown if the 
associated OpenGL drivers will do stereo-in-a-window (UCSF Chimera is an 
OpenGL-based application). If you are using Windows XP, Windows 7, or 
Linux, I believe you still need a NVIDIA Quadro or an AMD FirePro 
graphics card.
