XPS 8930, 3D blu-ray movies?

I just opened my new XPS 8930 and it comes with a BDRE blu-ray optical drive (#PVM4X - BD-RE, 6X, SATA, 9.5T, BU40N, HLDS).

I was wondering if it's possible to play 3-D blu-ray movies on my PC? Cyberlink PowerDVD 19 said, "no" but not why it was a "no." Hardware limitations? Software? Even if I have the right hardware and software, I supposed I need a monitor capable of the displaying the 3-D options.

Thanks!

You need:

  • 3D-enabled display/monitor,
  • Compatible graphics card
  • Compatible 3D glasses
  • Blu-ray drive that supports 3D (probably not available on Dell's OEM Blu-ray drive)
  • Blu-ray playback software

Thanks! 

Have the glasses, and software has options that show compatibility. Have to contact graphics card manufacturer. Hoping Dell can tell me if the OEM drive is capable.
