Default Building new 3D system

Hi Frinds,
Building new System For 3D Gaming, Movie Experience and for long lasting Future purpose atleast 4-5yrs
So far calculated Requirements according to my Budget that are-

NOW I am stuck with Graphic card solution
As I support and fan of ATI its hard to go for Nvidia only for 3D, but while searching I found this-
but not sure How many tried this and 3D solution really works for them

As if that case does it really saves money and give performance compared Nvidia? obviously Graphic card choice will matter bt lets consider graphic card from both companies of nearly equivalent capabilities then which one?? But is it worth to Go for this ATi solution, is it tested,proven,favourable by techies or Nvidia still serves best when comes to 3D in Desktops?
If opt for ATI which one to go with and if no choice then Help me chosing bet. Msi N460gtx cyclone and Zotac 470gtx

Choice for motherboard depends upon graphic card so either crosfire or sli

Then comes PSU, system will run 24 x 7 at least thrice a week so corsair HX series should be good or seasonic s12D is good choice?

About Monitor Dell Alienware 3D is in my sight,ny recommendation?

Kindly Give Helpful advice,suggestions

Thnx in advance,

For one, your listed parts can be revised in your favor. So if you wanted to give us your budget price we might be able to help squeeze more power out of this.

When you bring graphics into the mix it really depends what you want to spend. For around $160 the Nvidia GTX 460 768mb is the best bang per buck around $200 (IIRC) the 6870 is boss and so forth.

- AMD FX8320 @ 4.2Ghz - ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer - G.Skill Ripjaws X 8gb -
- Asus Strix GTX 970 - Corsair Neutron GTX - Corsair TX 750 -
- Cooler Master HAF XB - Corsair H105 -
- Asus VG248QE - Corsair M60 & K90 -

Don't get the WD Green series. The Green series is meant for storage since it's a low power, and consequently low performance, series. Get a WD Black.
I agree with Abstract, give us your budget and we may squeeze a more powerful build.

ASUS P5P77D :: INTEL i5 750@3.6 GHz :: Asus HD4890 :: 4GB Gskill Ripjaw 1600MHz CL7 :: WD Black 1TB :: SSD OCZ Vertex2 60GB :: Corsair 750TX :: LG L204WT :: Windows 7 x64

<<<<<<<<<< If you think I've been helpful in anyway rep me :p
