Preferred Website(s) for Parts: memoryexpress.com, newegg.ca, ncix.com, canadacomputers.com
Parts Preferences: by brand or type: Leaning towards intel+nvidea because 1) I may try to install Mac OSX also (not 100% sure on this though, so if it costs a lot more to get the same gaming performance, forget it) and I've heard nvidia+intel is the way to go for this and 2) I picked up a 3d monitor on boxing day and it seems nvidia > ati for 3d but correct me if I'm wrong here.
Overclocking: Maybe, not a top priority though.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe, having hard time deciding if its better to get 1 pimped video card or 2 good video cards
Monitor Resolution: 3d monitor is 1920x1080 and another monitor at 1680x1050.
Additional Comments: It shouldn't matter but I would prefer a cool looking case with LEDs and stuff, even if it costs a little extra
