I guess the one with bang for the buck please. I was looking at novatech.co.uk to buy the whole system. But not sure which one is the best option. And also need something that will give me head room for upgrade components. Thanks.
 
Well I would suggest Corsair 850TX...Can handle GTX 285 SLI, with an overclocked CPU, case fans, 2 or 3 HDDs, DVD drive...
But to have a more clear idea, give us the other specs of your PC, and at what resolutions you play at...

I wish I could just edit my post. CPU is 920 D0. All of this is from Novatech. And also do you recommend any Brand for GTX? Is XFX better? OR BFG?
 
Thats a very good choice however if u want a modular PSU,u can go for OCZ MODXSTREAM 900W too,its specs are nearly the same as the corsair one(The OCZ model produces 72A on rails)and its modular too,i have one and i am very satisfied with it.

About GPU,Both XFX and BFG are good brands.

I would want the highest resolution for gaming. I'm still trying to look for a 24" monitor. I was thinking of HP LP2475w but it's abit expensive. Has anybody know if Samsung 2233RZ any good? But the thing is it's only 22". Do you know which monitor is good in 24" range? Thanks.
 
Well for a 24" monitor(1920X1200) resolution, get the GTX 275...It is more than suffice and performs similar to the GTX 285 at that resolution...So later when you feel the need for more graphics power, then add one more in SLI...
As for the 24" monitors, Check these out...
ASUS MK241H
SAMSUNG TOC T240

Thanks gkay09. Do you think 120HZ be a best option for 3d gaming or Movies? The thing is I bought the 3D DVDs for my daughter but the 3D glasses provided doesn't even work on our 40" LCD TV which is currently connected to my PC via S-Video. I heard about this Nvidia 3d Vision but I'm just not sure if it will work for these movies.
 
Well I am sorry I don't have an idea about the 3D Glasses and Nvidia's 3D vision...
But I do know that the 120MHz LCDs have better pictures and there is virtually no ghosting...And yes they are the best option for fast moving images/ games...

And yes the GTX series have them in-built...

Will there be big difference between 22" inch or 24" in terms of gaming?
 
Well more than the screen size, the resolution matters the most...

There are 22" and a 24" LCD with the same 1080p resolution...So there will be no difference as for the graphics performance...

But there are 24" monitors with 1920X1200 resolution. which requires a more powerful card to handle those resolutions...

It is more of a personal choice I would say...some people like to game at larger screens and some people prefer normal screens...

If I get 24" with 1920X1200 resolution is GTX 275 enough?
 
Yes for the current games it is more than suffice...But in future if you want to enjoy the games at all their glory, then you would have to add one more in SLI...

But how much is the GTX 275 and the 2X GTX260...?
