Come to think about it, why do all GOOD 120hz panels have 3D? Is it to justify the price?
In theory any display could do 3D provided you find some method of running shutter glasses. They started marketing the whole 3D thing with 120Hz displays because then you have 60Hz per eye which is acceptable. I'd prefer 120Hz per eye but there's probably no rig out there that can output 240FPS on recent games.
As for stuttering at 60-90 FPS, so far I didn't see any issues there on my rig.
I believe my Asus VH278H and the BenQ XL2420T are pretty good but they most likely are over your budget. Also they're aimed more at NVidia users while you have some ATI card in your sig rig. If you, down the road, decide that you want 3D with your ATI card you'd either need games that support this out of the box (I think some recent Battlefield incarnation does) or something like the TriDef software for ATI cards. NVidia users have this software stuff built into the drivers but they're forced to buy officially certified monitors to get 3D whereas the TriDef stuff is bundled with the more ATI oriented monitors.
