As for 1080p3D. What tends to happen is that my CPU can't keep up. I know this because I have tried. Even at 1440p, Witcher 3 ultrad will dip in GPU usage. GTA V is the biggest issue because of some bug, it cuts CPU usage on 3D so it almost doesn't matter the resolution
Another thing to note, at 1080p, the games (at least Witcher 3) just doesn't look that sharp. I compromised at 3200 x 1800 to help with sharpness and get a little more usage from my GPU.
its a tricky situation. the 3D to me is worth it. but its stretching my 930 for sure.
Passive is better, but crosstalk isn't inevitable in games. VR doesn't have it, and dlp projection is pretty free of it as well, but dlp has to turn off and on very fast and the light is gone from the screen as soon as it bouces off : https://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp2.htm
But dlp projection has terrible blacks in most cases.
The Witcher 3 really does look a lot better at 4k. And the devs switched the physx to cpu after a few updates, but I heard there might be some ini type setting, or maybe a mod to get it back on your gpu. If you could do that it should help where there is a lot of candles/fires around. I played W3 for a while in 3d(at 1080p since the 3d on my VA 4k tv is trash) and I had to replay those parts.
That depth of view term is just some term I came up with to describe how you can't see near and far at the same time in 3d like a regular monitor. You have to change where your eyes focus and that takes time. Everything outside your depth of view is kind of cross eyed, just like real life. I turned the 3d up because I wanted more 3d and my depth of view was pretty shallow and the archers kept taking me by suprise. Then I'd look at them and Geralt would be out of focus and under attack. Maybe there is a better term for it, but that is one of the reasons I don't like 3d gaming. Serious Sam BFE vr kicks butt though.
And a Ryzen, like others have mentioned, sounds like a good upgrade path. If you get tired of 3d at 4k, or not, you can always use it for 4k60 and the 2000 series 6c12t should be a good buy for that.
