Specs: Windows 7, i5-2500k/4gb
Trying to build a 3D Nvidia vision setup under $1000. Searching, looking, reading for over a week now and finally decided to get what component to get for my build.

Please let me know if all parts are compatible with each other and will not conflict with each other.

CPU Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) $220

EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 570(Fermi) $334

Motherboard MSI P67A-G45(B3)LGA 1155 Intel P67 ATX $135

Memory Kingston 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1333(PC3 10600) $35

HDD Western Digital Caviar Blue WD3200AAKX 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s $40

Case Rosewill Smart One ATX Mid Tower Computer $40

Power Supply CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850W SLI Certified (Getting this cuz I might get a 2nd video card, so that will be good enough right?) $135

TOTAL $940

Please do me a favor and let me know if all parts compatible with each other or not.

I'm not a fan of dual graphic card configurations, but two GTX 460's will kick the crap out of a single GTX 570 & it would cost about the same.

Why are you buying 3 sticks of RAM? The board you chose only has 4 slots & does not support triple channel. Get 8GB (2 x 4GB). And if you have any intentions of ever overclocking, get DDR3-1600.

Why just a 320GB HDD when you can get a 1TB HDD w/32MB buffer for just a few $$ more?

1. getting gtx 570 since its for 3d nvidia vision and will also add same card later on.

2. Okay than how about this Ram (its compatible right):
Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

3. How about this HDD then:
Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB 7200 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s

4. Also, will you let me know if everything else is compatible or not, please?
