Approximate Purchase Date: Within the next few months.


Budget Range: $1000 or lower.


System Usage from Most to Least Important: 3D Gaming, 3D movies, etc.


Parts Not Required: N/A


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com preferably, really doesn't matter though.


Country of Origin: United States.


Parts Preferences: Not sure.


Overclocking: Don't know.

Most folks are lucky to get fluid framerates in Crysis and Metro without some sort of dual gpu setup, with graphics card(s) alone costing $500-$750; I fear adding 3D to the mix will not make the task easier or less expensive.
