Playing Gears of War 3 in stereoscopic 3D on an Acer HN274H, is it possible?

I bought GoW3 today hoping to play the game in stereoscopic 3D. My monitor supports stereoscopic 3d, the Acer HN274H. I have the option through the dashboard set to "Enabled" for S3D support. When I turn the game options on all I get is side by side which my monitor does not support even though the game is advertised as being stereoscopic 3D enabled. 

Am I missing something? Or is it simply not possible to play in stereo3D?

And for trouble shooting purposes I am using and HDMI 1.4a cable. Not sure if that makes a difference or not.

Side-by-Side 3d is stereoscopic. Your tv takes the 2 images and combines them to create stereoscopy.

You are using a monitor though, which is meant for use with Nvidia 3d vision. This is where your graphics card does the stereoscopy, rather than the monitor itself. A 3d monitor and tv a completely different things. A 3d tv requires a 3d processing unit to combine the images while a 3d monitor is really any monitor with 120+hz because it is actually the graphics card doing the work.

Short answer: You need a 3d tv.
