Default Nvidia 3d vision with a single gtx 580 3gb

I used to have Two gainward GTX 580 3GB Phantom but then while i was cleaning them my cat decided it would be lulzy to chew one of them. Now im down to one and because i have a 120hz monitor i was thinking if i could run Nvidia 3d vision with one gtx 580 at 1920x1080 resolution with decent fps.
I play:
Bf3
bf2
Metro 2033(moar like BEST GAME EVER, amirite?)
fus ro dah(Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)
Fallout New vegas
GTA IV

Buy one with multi display ports on the card, or SLI, or grab a different card that can do triple monitor. (560Ti 2win)

Run 3d vision yourself and see how it goes.

On a serious note though 3d vision has a huge performance hit so it tends to cut your fps in half with BF3 you'll get around ~60fps with a stock gtx580 so once you enable 3d you roughly half that. Imagine playing the games you're playing right now at half the fps you are right now and if it's bearable for you go for it, if not then overclock some more, get another 580 and sli, bump down some settings or just give up that dream.

Can i sli my gtx 580 3gb with one with only 1.5gb, cuz they are so much cheaper. And for some retarded reason, prices on gtx 580 3gb just went up the equivalent to 100 dollars here in Russia
