3D works requires a slightly different setup from normal high performance gaming setups. Your graphics cards are not the same, ideally, its the workstation graphics cards that you need, but they can cost a bomb and are actually same as their desktop variants, but at 5 times the price.

You could always resort to soft modding,which works, but would require a lot of reading and research. Nvidia cards are generally better for rendering purpose,so even a GTX 460 would do and would give you a much better gaming experience too.
