    Well that driver of course works with GeForce 6 gpus too as GeForce 7 gpus are basically identically to series 6.

      I see this is the 185 series driver. There is mention of passive "stereo 3D" support, but I don't see any mention of active stereo support, such as with the new 120 Hz LCD monitors and nVidia "GeForce 3D Vision." I want to run one of those 120 Hz monitors from a Quadro card. Is this supported yet or not?
