Multi monitor all the way. 3D gaming is somewhat a gimmick. It looks weird and give you a headache after an hour. If you get multi-monitor, you would need a pretty good graphics card. However, if you end up choosing a 3d monitor, get an nvidia card because they have better 3d technology.

And yes not all games support multi-monitors

Oculus rift isn't too far off so that might be your path to 3d with less performance hit.

Wow lol destwong that is so not true!

3D gaming Is actually very good and makes for an incredible experience.
Though as i said, its not something u play with 5 houres +
And its not a thing you use whene you game competitive fast passed games, like planetside, counter strike, etc.
Though its perfect for everyrole playgame with big open beautifull worlds.
Lotro, Skyrim, AssasinsCreed(Very beautifull)

As for your question, which one to get. Read my thread her :)  It will give you both for a cheap prise.

One game that Dont support surround vision is planetside which bugs me the hell out.

Aside from that u need to download Flawless Widescreen Wich fixes a crazy amount of games that has issues with Surround monitors.

that being said, a lot of games run Surround setup without any bugs at all.
After reading my thread if you still dont want both, i suggest you go with multimonitors. As 3d isnt something you will use all the time. As you will with 3 monitors.
But read my thread :p  And find yourself with both of the best^^

The developer version cost now 300 to preorder, but its the develop version.
The consumer version will be around in not to long and for around the same price.
Cant wait to try this :D

Did you read my thread?

Buy 2 Cheap 24" or 27" 2D Monitors
And 1 3D monitor if you can afford it.
Than u got your 3d on 1 screen and d2's on the side, works perfectly with a lot of games with a simple fix, setting the game to run in DX9

If you cant afford this, than go with multimonitors and not 3d. If you get more money later, you could just sell 1 of the monitors and replace with with a 3d.

If you go 3D Vision, you want this link: http://helixmod.wikispot.org/gamelist

It'll fix many games to work with it. It is pretty awesome.
