Your video card does not support 3d. On the AMD/ATi side it needs to be a 6450 or better.

As for your monitor, it comes with the Nvidia 3d starter kit. Your best bet is to get an Nvidia GPU. It will be easier to setup and supports a lot more titles.

I would recommend at the minimum a GTX570. Your PSU should be able to power it as long as it's a decent one.

For 3D Vision, you want the most GPU power you can afford.

Any GTX670 will do. Regardless of who makes it, most are Nvidia reference boards. The only thing you are buying is the cooler.

AMD 3D will work on 5xxx series cards and higher. AMD does not list that series because it is no longer available in the normal retail channels. The big issue is how much are you planning on using 3D? How much for Movies? How much for Gaming? AMD is good if you want to tinker and experiment. If you want out of the box compatibility Nvidia is much easier and gives greater peace of mind. I have both cards and use a Viewsonic monitor and a PJD6653w 3D projector.

If Gaming is more important I would get a GTX 670 at minimum. The GTX 670 gives greater performance and is easier on the PSU. You seem to keep your cards for a long time and the GTX 670 is also great in SLI. When you need it a couple of years down the road(if you only game on a single monitor now) it will be a lot cheaper.

As far as branding, I do not think there is a bad brand out there anymore.
