I just bought the Benq Xl2411Z and im interested in watching movies and playing games in 3D.
I have a single Radeon 7870 atm and it is getting me over 100 fps in CSGO and LoL, but not in CoD or BF. And because it is not Nvidia I cant play in 3d. So I want to buy a upgrade to my GPU to get more FPS and be able to play in 3D. I have been looking at the 780TI but a new one would be out of budget (I wont be able to get 3d glasses for a while) and im not sure about a used one (problems and such) I could also get a new 780 and a pair of glasses.
What is your advice? And does playing games in 3d give you less fps?
Thanks

You can't go wrong with gtx 780 if you can afford it. 4GB model of GTX 770 is also really good. If you can wait a month, new Nvidia cards are supposed to launch mid-September.

That sounds great, yes I can definitly wait a month, but whats up with 3D and FPS? I cant find anything on if you lose FPS if you play in 3D. Does anyone know?

Well for 3d it halves your refresh rate. One half goes to one eye and the other half goes to the other eye. The glasses have shutters that sync with the tv so the correct frame goes to the correct eye.

I've never actually played games in 3d though so I couldn't explain all the details.

3d will decrease your fps. Pretty much the GPU has to render each scene twice. From my experience it's about a 30 to percent loss at 1080p. I know that there are drivers you can use to get 3d out of AMD cards. Have you looked into the tri-def driver?

The thing is that I want to upgrade my card anyway to get more fps and getting a nvidia card will let me use 3D. I could get a better AMD card but I would have to buy a driver and I have heard that drivers dont work perfectly.

Well I would recommend a GTX 770 with 4GB of vram. Also plan on SLI real soon. But I have used Nvidia 3D and it can be a real pain. Not many games are optimized for it. Older games can get down right glitchy. In many cases you'll have to turn down lighting effects in game to avoid distracting artifacts. I abandoned my Nvidia 3d a while back and haven't looked back. I hope it works out better for you.

What games support 3d :/  but a 780 6gb would be a good call and last you for 5 years I'd say
