The AMD cards tend to be better for multi-screen setups while Nvidia seems to handle 3D much better. Now on games that are optimized for AMD, like Deus Ex: Human Revolution, they do pretty well especially the 7970 because of the VRAM. But Nvidia has been doing 3D longer and has a better rate of success compared to AMD.

Possibly at higher resolutions but they are optimized for 3D so if the game isn't too demanding you shouldn't have too much trouble. I'm always a fan of overkill just to make sure there is no issue so I would go with SLI cards or as high VRAM I can get. But you shouldn't have an issue with the 680 2GB at 1920x1080 on medium-high settings for most games. Check the benchmarks for those cards in how they handle 3D if you need 45+ fps at 1080p just to be safe before buying though.

AMD cards can use HD3D or TriDef. They are definitely not as good as Nvidia's 3d Vision. Not even close. If you pair a 670/680 with a 3d Vision 2 monitor you will have the best results. 3d Vision 2 monitors are definitely the best I have seen with the sharpest & brightest 3d picture with minimal to no crosstalk.

For 3d stick with the 2GB cards.

I enjoyed Nvidia 3d vision for a while. They seem to have less compatibility issues than Tri-def from what I've been told and also have a pretty active community for 3d vision fixes.
