Your 3D monitor sounds very cool. Some people complain about eyestrain with 3d which isn't an issue for me (considering I wear glasses). I know that manufacturers are working on eliminating the eyestrain problem and a 3D monitor is definitely in my future plans, but for now I'll go with a dual monitor when I get my new computer.

Is anyone using a wireless mouse?
