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.

So, please inform me if all parts below compatible with each other or not and do not conflict (will be playing on a 1080P 3D Lcd monitor):

CPU Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) $220
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072

EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 570(Fermi) $334
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130622

Motherboard MSI P67A-G45(B3)LGA 1155 Intel P67 ATX $135
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130582

Memory Kingston HyperX Blu 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) $30
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104203

HDD Western Digital Caviar Blue WD3200AAKX 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s $40
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136770

Case Rosewill Smart One ATX Mid Tower Computer $40
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147120

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
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139009

TOTAL $940

So, if anyone know any parts that are not compatible with each other than let me know!

The issue i see with this is the case. You would want a full atx case so it can fit a second card in. Something like this would do the job but it just a bit over the set budget.

1. I see in the review some mention it can handle another videocard (crossfire). So wouldn't that be good enough? If not do you suggest some other Case since that is too expensive for my budget?

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

Your case is small, you really should a full ATX case for space and airflow. Multi-GPU setups put out lots of heat. Don't forget, you need an OS too. Keep in mind that not all games do 3D very well, either. For instance, Deus Ex: HR only allowed for AMD's version of 3D not Nvidia's. I'm not sure if a driver update or patch has corrected the issue.

Okay...Gotcha. I got the OS covered for $100. Do you have suggestion for full ATX case under $50

The cheapest full ATX case Newegg has is the Sunbeam Transformer IC-TR-US-BA-WOPSU. The best one I suggest is the NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT but it is well above your (low) price of $50. BTW, 3D gaming on the PC is still very much a niche thing to do, make absolutely sure your monitor is capable of doing it and is supported by Nvidia, for 3D Vision, or AMD, for HD3D. If you are willing to go AMD for HD3D, you can save a little more money. The SAPPHIRE 100312-3SR Radeon HD 6950 Dirt3 Edition 2GB is about at the GTX 570 level of performance, with the XFX HD-697A-CNFC Radeon HD 6970 2GB coming in between it and the GTX 580. Short of getting a lesser CPU and motherboard, or even going AMD there too, there really isn't much more you can cut.

To answer question, all the parts are compatiable.

Well the cheapest one is still $20 more so I will hold onto the mid case I currently have. I am not getting any radeon card since I will be using nvidia 3d glasses kit to play 3d games.

Also, I changed the memory to this:
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231427

Also added this cd/dvd burner:
SAMSUNG CD/DVD Burner SATA SH-222AB - OEM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151233

Both parts are correct and compatible with my build right?

Those part would be compatible but you would have to overclock it to 1600.
