[Chimera-users] Setup for 3D workstations?

Hello all,

I apologize if this is skewed for the list; please correct me if so.

I am putting together a proposal to set up a 3D/computational lab at our 
school for the STEM area, with Chimera at the top of the list of 
applications using it.  The general idea is to have 10 workstations and 
one workstation-server (the server side being used for computational 
work), with students at each station doing their own things.

Does anyone have an idea of the best setup for each station with respect 
to hardware for viewing in 3D??  I expect our Dell-camp school to go 
with something like an Inspiron T5610, using an nVidia K4000 card.

I was thinking that the nVidia 3D vision system made sense, but honestly 
don't know if that would work with 10 different ones going at once.  I 
am unfamiliar with other options.

Would someone help me with this?  There would be two or three students 
at each station, FWIW. Am I out in left field in my thinking?

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
