I have the good fortune to have no use for 3D video at all, on my
computers, let alone high-end performance 3D video.  That's one of the
many computing headaches I avoid simply by not doing it.  And, as Greg
suggested, if I had to have (e.g.) a dedicated gaming box, it might well
run GameOS XP.  But I don't.
