720p 3D plasma(Samsung PS43F4900) or 1080i LED(LG 42LN540V)

Hi guys not too sure what TV to go for, both are around the same price and 42"+. I will be using my TV for all the usual tasks, gaming(3D gaming is what has me intersted in getting a 3D TV espically if it becomes an integral part of next gen gaming), HD sport, Netflix ect. The thing I'm most concerned about is that if I get the 1080i TV I could be left behind if 3D takes off while if I go for the 3D TV could be left behind in resolution terms. If you guys were going to buy which of the two would you go for and why? Any help, tips or opinions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers guys

As to the 3D gaming, that area has some folk exploding as they try to get it to work. Support is unusually bad and you hope what you have works as you know how bad PC support is, well 3D from a PC is a little harder so it's not something I will suggest to folk that want things that just work.
