Hello. I wanted to know if my 460 1gig sli setup would be powerful enough for a 3d vision or not. would I be better off going with a 1650x1050 or 1920x1080 res? I was wanting to go with a 1920x1080 one but i just don't know if i have enough power or not. also, how much of a performance loss can i expect to lose?

I plan on getting a kit for xmas but I really don't know if I should get it now or wait a 6-12 mouths. what do you all think?


computer spec's are:

Intel Core i5-750 running @ 4ghz
Corsair Cooling Hydro Series h50
EVGA P55 SLI E655-KR
CORSAIR XMS3 8GB DDR3 1600
2x msi cyclone 460 gtx 1GB In SLI
Power Supply: Ultrax4 1050
2x Western Digital Caviar Black 640GB Hard Drive raid 0
Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium
windows vista 64

If I remember correctly by going 3d you'll pretty much be cutting the fps by ~50%, so with two GTX460's, cant see why it wouldnt work. Depending on the game and settings used ofcourse.

Basically whatever settings give you 60FPS now, will give you effectively 30FPS (maybe a little less) with 3D vision. Since 2 460s in SLI are about 90% better than a single card, it will be almost as if you went to having just a single card.

Assuming your cards are overclocked (it'd be a shame not to with a cyclone), the overclocking should easily make up for that 10%.
