AMD cards can sometimes work with Nvidia 3D monitors, but there is a key importance. The monitor must support HDMI 1.4a which is rare to be supported, and even then, it only supports 60hz 3D gaming up to 720p.
What you really want is a 3D monitor that supports Displayport. Look at the Samsung 750 and 950 monitors. They are the only ones with displayport 3D monitors that I'm aware of. These are much better suited for you. Hopefully you can either cancel your order or return it at a small fee for the monitor you want.
