I just bought the new 750$ Acer 27" 3d monitor (the one that comes with Nvidia glasses)....
to watch 3d Movies on this monitor, would I have to get a 3D BluRay Player?

Because I went to the bluray website and it says "Blu-ray can play 3-D movies but you must have a 3-D compatible television in order for them to fully work."

I can buy a bluray player for 89$ right now, or I can buy the "3D Bluray player" for 150$.........

however since I have the monitor , do I HAVE to get the bluray 3D dvd player?

Or can I just settle with the 89$ one that still plays in 1080p..

Please reply!
Thank you!

(I am using the Acer HN274)

Yep, you need the 3D player. The whole chain-player, any receiver/preamp between them, and display-must be 3D compatible.
