If you look for 3d monitors with nvidia 3d vision kits included, you'll find there isn't much selection anyhow, it should make it fairly easy. However you have more selection if you buy the kit seperate, you just need to be careful what you buy.

Be sure to get the 3d vision 2.0 version of the glasses (I think this typically gets labeled as light boost), as they reportedly make things much brighter. I believe nVidia's ideal connector for 3d is Dual Link DVI, I doubt HDMI is able to run at full framerate.

Don't get a monitor that isn't Nvidia 3d Vision ready, since you have an nVidia card you won't get a very good experience with monitors using proprietary glasses (such as the samsung s23a950d, which is great for AMD cards, but not so much for nvidia).

A quick newegg search found only a couple monitors that are 3d vision ready.
A 27" at 599$:
A 23" at 359$: (this one doesn't appear to have the lightboost glasses, unfortunately).

A lot of the other monitors that pop-up have some very deceptive stuff (such as 3d vision ready, with proprietary glasses, so you still would have to buy the nvidia kit), so do be careful; if you're not sure, post what you plan on getting before you buy.

Edit: On second thought, you may have better luck buying a 3d vision ready monitor and then a lightboosted set of glasses seperately, just be sure you select a monitor that has DL-DVI and 120Hz and all that jazz.

No one knows what size monitor you should get except you by the way :)  if you have a budget, what is it?

I'd go with the ASUS 27" VG278H. I have 3 of them for my 3D surround build and couldn't be happier with them.

If you don't post what you are looking at, nobody can help you choose between two things.
