    I cannot find compatible Nvidia graphics card and 3D monitor for PPro/Neo3D system

      Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 / Tech specs(http://www.adobe.com/products/premiere/tech-specs.html) lists the graphics cards that can be used to accelerate video editing.  I would like to put a system together similar to what Dave Helmly describes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aqi_qivG82c) with a 3D computer monitor and 3D TV secondary display.  However the 3D monitors I have seen like an Asus (http://usa.asus.com/Display/LCD_Monitors/VG236H/#overview) indicate Nvidia graphic cards that have no overlap with those specified on the PPro site.  Also, I have found no towers locally that come with an appropriate Nvidia card.  I have found some that have a spare PCIe slot.  I would need two video cards anyway; however, the graphics card that comes with some of these machines specifies a Max resolution of 2560x1600.

       

      Here are my questions:
      1)  What Nvidia graphics cards are both supported by PPro and support 3D monitors?  Am I looking at the wrong monitors?  The Alienware site does not seem to specify which video cards are compatible.
      2)  If the built in video card has a max resolution of 2560x1600, does that mean if I want 1920x1080 resolution for each eye I need Alternate-frame sequencing format (HDMI output to the 3D TV)?

       

      I have not purchased any equipment yet, so I am looking for options that work.  Thanks for your help.
