Trying to build a 3d Nvidia vision setup under $900. Been searching for a week deciding what part to get and now deciding to get some help.

So far I think the parts below will be sufficent but what do the members here think (the cheaper the part the better it is for my build however it has to play 3d games/movies smoothly):

CPU Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) $220

Graphics GIGABYTE GV-N56GOC-1GI GeForce GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB (will OC later and I hope it plays 3D games on high setting without a problem) $185

Motherboard GIGABYTE GA-P67A-D3-B3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard $104

Memory G.SKILL NS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBNS $25.99

HDD Western Digital Caviar Blue WD3200AAKX 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s $40

Case Xigmatek Utgard CPC-T90DB-U01 Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower $50

PSU COOLER MASTER GX Series RS750-ACAAE3-US 750W ATX12V v2.31 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC $100
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Microsoft windows 7 Home premium $110

Please let me know if all parts compatible with each other or not and how can I reduce the price even lower?

Monitor I will be using is Asus VG236H 23" 2ms 1920x1080 Full HD. Later on will play on a projector or mitsubushi 3d dlp hdtv 73 inches to 83 inches.

Approximate Purchase Date: Within a few days

Budget Range: $1000 or lower.

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


Parts Not Required: Monitor, keyboard, mouse, nvidia 3d kit

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com, walmart, circuit city, ecost,

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: GPU

Overclocking: Maybe in the future

SLI: Maybe in the future if I like the 3d Nvidia vision setup

Additional Comments: Looking to build a 3D gaming PC for under $900. Hoping to play newer, more demanding games like: Crysis 2, Metro 2033 at max settings in 3D at highest setting.

I am only going to play 3d gaming on one monitor right now (later on if I do 3d surround then I will get another GPU). So wouldn't that be sufficient?

But if I overclock two 560's wouldn't that be enough?

Do you also have any other suggestion on my build?

Go for a 560Ti.

Samsung spinpoint f3 1tb seems to be the popular choice for hdd here.

Also cooler master isn't well regarded in terms of their psu offerings. Go with antec, seasonic, corsair, xfx, pc power and cooling for psu. (adjust wattage depending on your gpu choice)

Even two 560 ti's you wont really have the 3rd you want, unless you bring down the resolution on your monitor.

You said "Even two 560 ti's you wont really have the 3d you want". Are you making this statement for the 1080p resolution or the highest setting in the game or for 3 monitors setting?

Okay I am going to change the psu to what you suggested.

But, changing the HDD to the one you suggested, will that make a speed difference in playing 3d games since I won't be doing any video or audio or photoshop editing. So what is the real benefit of getting the samsung HDD?
