I am from India and i want to build a gaming system.
I have a bundle of questions going on in my mind. So will shoot one by one.

1)Should i go with amd system or intel for gaming?

I am ready to spend around 45,000 to 50,000 indian rupees.
But my problem is the price here varies a lot compared to the price in , or Also the latest parts are not available with dealers here . So i cant really decide my budget based on the online us dollar prices.

2) Does anyone know how much it might cost me if i am going to ship it from any of these sites.
Other than shipping prices will i be charged anything extra by custom ?? If so how much?? Some one please help me out with this.

Please specify one build( without 3D but with an option to upgrade to 3D later ) and one more build( for 3D gaming) for the above budget. No probs if it crosses the budget by some amount.

3) Should i actually go for 3D gaming now itself or wait until the price drops down for 3d led monitors??

4)Is " Zalman 3D LCD monitor " the only one which is supported by ati radeon graphic cards? If so then i will be restricted to use nvidia itself since it supports most of the 3D monitors.

I dont want to regret for anything after i spend this much . So any help would be of great great use.

Thanks in advance :)

3d monitors/games only in it's infancy, I would not worry about it yet.....

Intel has the advantage in framerates, less power draw,...really no reason to choose AMD over Intel unless restricted to very low cost system, $600, where an AMD cpu/mb combo can cost $200 less, allowing savings to be put into a nice video card....
