Ask build for future 3D vision game PC

Last response: in Systems

Budget Range: less than 2000. (don't wanna waste money though)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: desktop for game and surfing the internet, I am trying to experience 3D Vision games, but I am not sure whether it is the right time to get a 120Hz monitor and 3d vision kit.

Parts Not Required: mouse and Windows 7 pro.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:

Country of Origin: USA

Parts Preferences: I prefer Intel build.

Overclocking: maybe I will learn how to overclock

SLI or Crossfire: I will, but not for now. So I need a mobo ready for SLI and only one videocard.

Monitor Resolution: 1920×1080

Additional Comments: If there is a 120Hz monitor with good performance, I will take one. If not, I prefer a normal one.

Your post was a bit confusing but here is something:

i5 760 @ 2.8GHz $209

ASUS P7P55D PRO $150

G.Skill Ripjaws 7-8-7-24 1600MHz 4GB $95

Case + PSU:
Antec Illusion + Antec EA 750W $140

Asus GTX470 $299

Samsung F3 1TB $75


Not sure if you want monitors, etc. You could also get a GTX 480 by upping the PSU to 850/1000W. Though I'm not sure if you'll need this much performance.

Thank you Wolygon, I wanna a monitor and I'm not so sure about the performance of the 3D ready monitors. They are maybe 'beta' edition. And I changed my post. Hope it not confuse U.

Ok glad that helped and thanks for the revision of the post.

I'd say you will be impressed with current monitors it just how much your willing to pay.

The Acer 23.6" 120Hz 2ms monitor will set you back $350 whereas a standard monitor will cost a bit above $200. Although if you buy today (ends 10/10) you apparently get $50 off the monitor for a cost of $300. It is shown below:

Now the 3D vision kit is $155 when bundled with the GTX 470:

So the cost of getting 3D is $305 or $255 (depending if you make that $50 off). I think you should decide for yourself if you want to spend the money or not. Maybe read some reviews on 3D gaming to see if you think its good enough to warrant the cash.

Hope that helps you make up your mind.

Thank u. I gathered these and build my pc. Unfortunatly when I set up, the mobo' Mem-led is red, and no beep. The monitor is blank. Could u give me any advice ? And I tried the memOK button, but it is useless.

Thats awesome, good work. What was the problem?

Also did you end up going 3D? You didn't say.

The problem was that the RAM memo was in the wrong direction.

And I tested the 3D Vision in the Mafia2, Metro2033 , World of Warcraft, and other videos. It is excellent in the Mafia 2 and Metro 2033. No ghosting and with high FPS. But I cannot open the stereo in WoW. And in the 3D videos, it is awesome.

There is one thing I must say, I can't play 3D Vision game for very long time. And for some pictures the ghosting exists.

Awesome work. Why can't you play it for very long? Do your eyes get sore or something?

Hopefully you'll enjoy it enough to negate the bad effects.

some of my friends felt dizziness when playing 3d vision game for the first time. And I will feel the same if I play for one hour or two. But for the 3d video, it is OK, i think.
