Default New to 3D Vision...Using One Monitor

Hi everyone,

Please bear with me as I am new to building computers and to 3D Vision. So I will just get straight to the point. I purchased an EVGA GTX 570 Superclocked GPU and well as the 3D Vision and with one ASUS VG236H monitor. So my question is: do I need to get another GTX 570 Superclocked to play modern games in 3D on this one monitor (I can't afford 3D Surround)? Or can I get by with just the one? Cuz I've been reading everywhere that people use SLI when using the 3D vision but most of those people are using 3 monitors. I'm only using one. So is one GTX570 Superclocked enough? Or should I return the 3D vision with the monitor and just buy a regular 60Hz monitor and play games in 2D (cuz I know the GTX 570 can handle that :P).

Thanks ahead of time. Oh and btw...coming to this forum was my last resort. I really did try and search online for an answer but I just couldn't find anything concrete.

One gpu is fine for 3d vision with a single monitor. I'm running a single 570 and 3d vision with a projector. Framerates are great with all the eye candy options on.

Also, there is no way I'll go back to 2d gaming now. Love love love 3d gaming. you will too.

yep I love 3D Vision too. Even the 550 Ti can do playable framerates (40+) on some new games like Bulletstorm (just disable AA and set the shadows to medium), so 570 can definitely handle most games maxed out fine (except metro 2033!)
