Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 1 TB Sata II (already have, bought on sale last Black Friday)
SSD: not sure (but will get a 40, 60 or 64 GB SATA III) mainly for OS and drivers
ODD: Samsung 8x BD/Combo drive (already have, bought on sale last Black Friday)
PSU: Antec SG850 Watt (already have, lucked out and got it for < $100)
Monitor: Acer GD235HZ 3D display (already have)
nVIDIA 3D Vision Kit (already have)
KB & mouse (already have)
Thermalright 120 TRUE Black Rev. C HSF (already have)
This system is intended for gaming in 3D (hence the nVIDIA 3D Vision Kit) and viewing 3D Blu-ray movies. My question is, considering I already have the PSU I will be using, what would be my best option for nVIDIA graphics cards? I would like to run SLI, but not necessary. Also, before everone gets on me about using an X58 mobo rather than a new P67......well, the P67's are just too hard to find at the moment and I want a mobo that is intended for gaming and fits the nVIDIA green theme (lol). Thanks for all help and recommendations ahead of time, I appreciate it.
Update: I was leaning for a P67 mobo (I know they are better)....thinking of the ASRock P67 Extreme 4 & an Intel i5 2500k and dropping memory to 8 GB Smart Tracer
If it's intended for gaming, 6 gigs of RAM is more than enough. Or 4 gigs, if you go Dual-Channel, based on:
Sandy Bridge mobos are coming back into stock, unless you're ordering in the next day or two I'd recommend you just wait for one as you really should be rolling Sandy Bridge, both because it's cheaper and runs better. However, if you absolutely can't wait, then a good pairing with the 960 would easily be the GTX 580. If that's too pricy, consider its cousin the 560 TI.
