I currently have 2x 480 GTXs in SLI. With my old 3d vision 1 acer 1920 x 1080 monitor, some games like BF3 will occassionally get slowdowns and such in 3d mode @ 1920 x 1080.

My question is simply: What is the most powerful GPU configuration that will work with Stereoscopic gaming for nvidia?

I'm willing to buy whatever it takes to get a smooth fps experience in 3D. Price isn't really a problem.

But from what I gather from around the web, SLI, Tri-SLI, and quad / 4way SLI sometimes has issues with 3D games.

So in your guy's opinion, what would be best solution at this stage in the game for stereoscopic 3D gaming @1920 x 1080? Maybe 2x 580 gtx evga classified OCed or similar set up?

Maybe 3x 580s?

2x 590s?

Lemme know what you guys think.

Also, before anyone suggests CPU changes as well, I have a 920 i7 OCed at 4.6ghz, so no issues there.

Two 590's gets you 10% more than one 590 .... not a good option.

The most powerful I would go for is three 580's w/three 120 Hz monitors

On a single screen, I just played a cupla hours of Batman Arkham City and though I'm not a "let's measure the fps" kinda player, I played with twin 900 Mhz factory OC'd 560 Ti's (cranked up to 980 Mhz), with just twin SLI, PhysX enabled and all the goodies (120Hz monitor / 3D Vision 2 glasses), I experienced smooth game play, not issues. Considering the $460 cost and performance experience of the twin 560's, I really can't imagine investing $1590 for something with better fps.

Well Batman isn't a very high demanding game. Its by far not the weakest game out in terms of hardware requirements, but it's not comparible to Crysis 2 with DX11 and ultra texture pack, or BF3.

With 2x 480s, *most* games play very well in 3D: For example, no issues with Assassin's Creed 2, Duke Nukem Forever, COD MW2 and Just Cause 2.

But BF3 on max settings with 3D on, the fps drops enough to make you feel like you're playing in slowmotion. It's not "unplayable", but there is defenetly room for improvement.

My X58 classified mobo is capable of handling 3x 580s, so I might opt for 3x 580s in Tri SLI. Seems that it's the best option considering quad sli doesn't scale well from what you're saying.

Does anyone know if there are many issues with nvidia 3D and tri-sli?

Also, AMD/ATI 3D technology is called HD3D last I checked, but I don't really care about ATI, because I have a 3D vision 2 monitor on the way. So AMD/ATI cards would do me no good.
