the way i understand it, you'll need over 120FPS in a game for the 3dvision to run smooth (60 for each eye), so a second card could be usefull if you want to keep all the settings, AA etc at max.... what monitor were you thinking of using? cause resolution matters alot, 1680x1050 might work just 'fine' with single gpu.

well if you look at the fps numbers from this review, all the really new games wont run fast enough with just one gpu at fullhd with maxed settings.... so idk, might work if you lower the settings a little. Older games wont be a problem, except crysis lol

would it be too much of a hassle to first try it with just one and then buy a second one if the performance isnt good enough?

so is it a problem if the first one is superclocked and the second is not or the first one is EVGA and the second is different brand but same gtx 480

No they will default to the slower card and run fine together

no problems there, you can allways overclock the other one as well. though if one of the cards has better/worse binned chip or better (ie non-reference) cooler, it might effect the oc capabilities and/or temperatures. But those factory overclocks are usually very modest, shouldn't be too hard to match them with card with reference desing...
