Having depth on a racing game is very good and having tried tomb raider in 2d versus 3d... 2d sucks the life right out of it. Real baps would be preferable especially on a girl who looks like Lara. I already got the 3d monitor, 2 pairs of 3d vision 2 glasses so I dunt have to worry. The extra GPU overhead can be a problem though. Tomb raider on ultra is too much for a single 680 even overclocked +145mhz core and +450mhz vram.
