is this possible? Does the DVI port have the same bandwidth as the 1.4 HDMI port for handling the 3D signal?
No i haven't tried since i don't have 3D display yet but it must work.

I think we have three options without an 1.4 AVR
:1) Extended mode with multiple GPUs:
iGPU to 1.3 AVR for HD audio bitstreaming.
GPU(460-450-430) to 1.4 compliant TV for video. (via HDMI 1.4)
If we choice this we must have a mobo supporting multiple GPU streaming, 1.4 compliant TV (which is relatively expensive) and WinDVD 10.2) Extended mode over single GPU:
nVidia GPU's DVI to 1.4 compliant 3D TV for video.
nVidia GPU's HDMI to AVR for audio

(and perhaps HD 6xxx too with the ATI adapter), you should be able to switch DVI and HDMI and use the HDMI port to connect to a HDMI 1.4a HDTV and a DVI port to connect to a HDMI 1.3 AVR.
In this case, we must have an 1.4 compliant TV (which is relatively expensive) and any mobo and any commercial 3D player. (PDVD, TMT, WinDVD)
nVidia GPU's DVI to 3D ready monitor or PJ for video. (if 3D monitor is 1080p you will need DVI to DVI, if PJ is 720p DVI to HDMI (1.3) will be enough. -thx rene)
nVidia GPU's HDMI to AVR for audio.
In this case, we don't need to spend much money and any mobo or PDVD10 /TMT 3/WinDVD 10 will be enough.
Rene please correct me if i'm wrong.
