Default Re: GTX 285 + GeForce Vision

So I've been playing WOW in 2D with this new 285 GTX 1GB card. I have to say, the difference is significant but not massive from my previous 8800GTS 640mb. I can now run with all options to max except shadows, which causes ~20fps dips in Dalaran if it is at 100%. Although, once every 30mins or so I get a strange 1s stutter.

I don't think that I'm CPU limited as I have a Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700, which is a pretty beefy CPU.

So, I'm wondering what options I would have to disable to play in 3-D if I can't put shadows to max in 2-D. Obviously shadows will have to be at 90%, I want to try to keep draw distance to max as to not miss anything... I wonder how it would run, as I'm quite sensitive to framerates. Getting cold feet, especially since the 3-D combo available costs $600 and is the same size monitor that I currently have... Was hoping for a 24" at least for that price.
We're all in it together.
