Hi,

I already built my PC with following components, :) 

Intel Core i7 3770K OC up to 4.5Ghz
Corsair H100i CPU Cooler
Asus Sabertooth Z77 Motherboard
Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) Vengeance 1600 Mhz CL9 DDR3 Memory kit
Intel 330-series 120GB SSD
Toshiba 3TB 7200RPM Hard Drive
4 x Corsair AF120 Fans excluding 2 fans on H100i
Samsung BD-ROM/DVD R/W (SH-B123) Optical Drive
Corsair Vengeance-series C70 Case
Corsair AX750 750W 80+ Gold Modular Power Supply

I'm planning to have a single monitor gaming rig as I don't feel comfortable in playing with 2 or 3 monitors (and I don't have enough space to have multiple monitors). Instead I would prefer a larger screen with 3D capability and highest frame rates. In My country the best monitor that i can find is Samsung SyncMaster S27A750D (SA750);

This is a 27 inch 3D monitor with 120Hz fps rate. So what is the most recommended Graphic card that will suite my requirement. I can even buy a Nvidia GTX690 or have SLI or Crossfire set up depending on capability of my Power supply. But I want a graphic card which will be optimized under the capabilities of the above monitor. Please suggest the most recommended GPU so that I can find a suitable card which has that GPU from my country. I can easily find any ASUS, Sapphire and EVGA card from local dealers. Please help me :)

What you need is modern and capable hardware. For power supply I would recommend the TX 750 M or you can go for the 850W if you want. Regarding a gpu I would also recommend going for the GTX 680 (the 690 is very overpriced) and or you can buy the HD 7970. Both are high end graphic cards and you will get the most of your rig in terms of graphics performance.

Hope this helps!

That's a gorgeous looking monitor! However, it's only 1920x1080. Usually monitors this big have 2560x1440 resolution to make images look sharper. If you have the money and you insist on something this big I would recommend getting a higher resolution monitor, but you have to keep in mind resolution is the thing that matters to a graphics card, not size. For example, if you want to reach 120FPS in BF3 @ Ultra with no AA on a 1920x1080 monitor you would need at least a 670GTX, however, if you want to play it on a 2560x1080 while keeping 120FPS you would need a 690GTX or SLI 680s.
For me to really help you I need to know what kind of games you play. BF3, Crysis 3 etc., are very demanding games, League of Legends etc., not so much.
If you know what you're getting into by buying this monitor and you play modern demanding games then I would recommend the 670GTX, it's one hell of a card and it has a better value than a 680. The 670 will give you an average of 120fps in most games and will truly show you the meaning of 120fps.

Id use the Asus equivalent monitor

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and a pair of Asus GTX 670 DCII's

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

As for the PSU, the HX series from Corsair has better voltage stability and lower ripple. The 750 works if ya not overclocking ..... the 850 would be better if ya OCing the CPU and GPUs.

Id also upgrade from the C70 to the 500R .... better case for the same price

^Don't get titan. If you're going single monitor and want to dump a lot of money in to an nVidia card go for the 690.

Hi,

Thanks for quick replies. Well the monitor i mentioned here;

http://www.samsung.com/hk_en/consu [...] d-9-3d-led

is the best i can find in my country. And the fact that i want to play games like BF3, Crysis, Metro in highest resolution and preferably in 3D makes me to buy this monitor. I agree that it is always better to go for a higher resolution monitor. So I decided to hunt for some good monitors with higher resolution, larger display and 3D capability.

But my main concern was whether my GPU options (GTX690, GTX670 DC2 2-way SLI, HD7970) are too much for a single monitor even if it is a premium one. Now i realized that my GPU options will not waste my money with my single monitor setup.

So can you guys recommend me some good quality 3D monitors with 27inch and 120Hz refresh rate so that it will fully utilize the GPU that I'm going to install. :-)

I bought that monitor set last week (Asus VG278H set), and I can assure the poster that this 3D Asus monitor is completely STUNNING in 3D (in movies). Utterly STUNNING; especially compared to the alternative latest passive 3D I have compared to and seen around (even Sony brands [which is why Sony have gone back to active shutters in their latest 4K 3D Tv`s]).

And I only tested it in 3D via HDMI via a Sony PS3, which gives lower frame rates.

I too am looking to upgrade for Asus/NVidia 3D from my (1GB parallel) HD7770 crossfire cards to get a suitable GTX Graphics card/s to use my PC 3D Panasonic (Bufallo branded) DVD/Blu-Ray drive.... to do mainly offline PC gaming in 3D (until `ironsight` issue is fixed to be 1m into the screen depth [or made semi-transparent] to help with aim focus switching).

But here (in Japan) that 2GB card (ASUS GTX670-DC2-2GD5) is $400, and the 4GB version (for the most graphically intensive games [which use just over 2GB frame buffer]) is $620 on Amazon jp (cheapest place in Japan for such stuff).....so I am stuck between a rock and a hard place; as the very cheapest GTX780 supplier is $720 (they go to $1,000 USD) and new cards are coming out soon (AMD will now support ASUS NVidia FULL-Speed 3D via HDMI 2 on the to-be-released R9 290X...)...

And that R9 290X is how much (with `free` games); and is 3GB going to be enough long-term?

Patience.
