    Yup but present ips panels will take 3d out of the equation which is op's requirement.

    Games benefit from lower response times and tn panels are better. But recent improvements in ips panels have reduced the gap to a good extent. Ips panels give much better colour gamut but the differences is noticeable to 3d professionals, content creators and designers working in vue or maya etc.

    From gaming standpoint it does not do any significant difference and thats why people still prefer TN.



    @ jsjs

    That benq monitor is too good to resist imo and definitely is worth checking. I played arkham asylum in a 1600x1080 samsung 2233rz and it was unbelievably immersive. Benq should be lot better than that cause its newer , led based and is 24 inches of full hd glory.

    Lets say in future, if you do get a good ips based 3d led tv, you can still use this system to play 3d content.

    Check this and this.

    dell u2711 doesn't do 3d and not worth it for 40k+.

    Here's the reviews for benq 3d monitor. Check THIS , THIS & THIS.

    A short conclusion by the reviewer:

    "What really struck me at first about the BenQ XL2410T was its simple and expansive design. In actual performance, the monitor excelled at pretty much everything I threw at it; from games to movies to just plain webpages, everything looks crisp and pleasant. Even on its own the monitor would have been worth it, but the fact that it’s Nvidia 3D Vision compatible, coupled with its practicality put it head and shoulders above the competition".


    Tell us your opinion buddy.

    Here it goes buddy:

    Intel Core i5 2500k @ 11k
    Noctua NH D14 @ 4.5k
    Asus P8P67 Pro @ 12k
    Corsair DDR-III Memory 8GB - Model CMX4GX3M1A1600C9(4x2) @ 5.8k
    MSI N580 GTX Graphics Card @ 28k
    Corsair Force SSD 60GB @ 7.2K
    WD 1TB Blue @ 2.7k
    Antec TPQ-1200 AP Power Supply @ 14k
    CM HAF X @ 11k
    Benq XL2410T 24" 3D Gaming LED Monitor + Nvidia 3D kit bundle @ 32k
    Logitech X506 @ 5k
    Razer Death Adder @ 2.1k
    Razer Arctosa @ 2.2k
    APC 1.1KVA @ 4.5K


    The reason i ditched the corsair hx 850 is because you will add another gtx 580 in future and 850 is a bit insufficient. The antec 1200 can pull it of very easily and is an excellent psu. Alternately, you can opt for corsair hx 1000 at the same price as that of antec. But i suggest antec as its equivalent to a corsair ax1200 gold which is 19k.

    Corsair hx850 is good enough upto gtx 570 sli.

    Also try considering i7 2600k at a premium of 5k which will make your system even more future proof. Its the fastest currently.

    Wont 1000W PSU work?

    I7 2600k is good, the total cost then is 147k which i can afford. But isnt a 1000w psu enough

    ^^ well corsair hx1000 will work but at same price, you are getting antec 1200 and its a terrific model WITH AN 80+ SILVER RATING meaning its highly efficient when drawing power. Safe for a high end rig.

    For a 580 sli, i would suggest a corsair ax1200 but its way too pricey at 19k. So antec 1200 is the best bet at the price of a 1000w psu.
    And don't worry, it wont draw 1200watts all the time from socket but as much power required by the system in real time.

    Check its video review HERE. It easily handled a 4 way gtx 480 sli.
    So a two way gtx 580 sli would be a piece of cake for it.

    Check its official link HERE.

    ^^ Well don't worry on that part. This system will be a terrific performer overall and there is absolutely no doubt about that. Check various review sites to check the performance of i7 2600k.

    Check the review of i7 2600k HERE. See the hardware setup.

    All the parts we have mentioned are great. Like you have the fastest processor, fastest single gpu (sli later), 8gigs of ram, ssd , a good premium p67 board, a great psu to match, so you absolutely can't go wrong with any.

    In a nutshell, the above system is a beast and will be a bigger beast when you add another 580.

    @jsjs why 8 gb ram dude? not needed if you're only gonna play and watch movies.
    you're not gonna do video-editing and photoshop will you?

    @vicky if he's gonna sli later then shouldn't he get a 1500W PSU? I mean sli gtx 580 will need those Koolance waterblocks and they need power.

    Also i think WDC Black will be better.

    Palit has released 3GB version of GTX 580. With two fans. If its available in India then he can go for that.

    And about the CPU cooler.. is Prolimatech Megahalems available in India? It works better than Noctua NH-D14.

    @ gaurav

    Buddy antec TPQ gives 1700w power on full load. Its that good and is 80+ silver certified. It handled 4 gtx 480's in a 4way sli easily ,so two 580's are very easy for it. Check the above video review. 1500w psu's are very rare and will be an overkill for this system.

    Check antec psu calculator and you will know.

    Since op's going for corsair ssd, wd black is not required and will be a waste. Blue will be more than sufficient. The primary partition will remain in the ssd.

    Noctua is more than enough for cooling the i7 2600k.

    8gigs of ram will be more future proof. Since ram prices are very low now, its better to add them now.Games will start using more than 4 gigs of ram after crysis 2 which supports 8 processing threads.

    @ jsjs

    Sabertooth is the better option. Since the price difference isn't too much, go with the sabertooth. Better than p67 pro and has 8+2 phase power design.
    Check its review HERE. Its guru 3d's top pick. Great board for overclocking and has the efi bios too.

    And as jaskanwar mentioned, don't get it now cause all p67 and h67 boards have sata3 problems in pch. Wait for the revised boards to come out by march.

    ^^ Ejjaktly. If you're too impatient to wait, then go get an AMD counterpart, but if not, then wait for them to fix and until then, go play Contra in TV...:-D:-D:-D:-D
