Hello,
I have this video card,
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6814129140
(VisionTek Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress Pro) 2.0 x16 HDCP Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity)

Was wondering if it's compatible with this,

http://www.nvidia.com/object/produ [...] it_us.html
(NVIDIA 3D Vision Stereoscopic Glasses)

If not, is there a video card I can purchase that'd would fit in this mother board?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] 6813131402
(ASUS D EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard)

That has the same specs and my current video card? (Top item listed.)

I'm a graphic designer, I'd like the 3D effect while working in it. Also I'm a Starcraft 2 Beta tester as well, heard that it works for that as well.

Sorry, did not meant to double post.

You are going to need an Nvidia card to use those 3D specs I do believe.

Either the GTX285 which is old and being EOL'd or the GTX470 or GTX480 which have yet to be released.

If you hold on a few months there might be an ATI equivalent. They put some stereo scopic hooks in their drivers but aren't making the hardware themselves.

Are there any that offer Directx 11?

Also...

What company would you recommend for the GTX285?

I'm just looking for a nVidia card that can measure up to my current ATI card. I can always switch my cards back later, if they do.

I wouldn't hold your breath on that if I were you, chances are it's going to be like all the talk of open CL and bullet physics, just talk and bugger all else.

Here in the UK that card was being sold in a bundle package with the 3D specs and a 120hz monitor so it should do the job.

So which one/which manufacture is the best way to go?

The cheaper one, 140 bucks for an extra 100MB of RAM is not worth it as it's not going to make a lot if any difference.

It would be compatible with my ASUS mother board?

Yes, there is no reason why an ATi card will not work in a mobo with an Nvidia chipset or an Nvidia card will not work in a board that uses an AMD CPU.

Thanks so much for all your help, one last question, since I'm an american I didn't quite understand your last post.

So it won't work with that motherboard?

It will work on that board, you'll be fine.
