Best Witch Doctor Build/Gear?

Okay so soon enough I want to make a Witch Doctor and I am trying to research the best builds and gear...

So basically does anyone have a great build, that everyone can agree on that is good for soloing, co-op, kiting, basically an all around great build for anything Inferno for the Witch Doctor? You can even give me a certain type of build like, "Oh here is a good kiting build" or something like that.

Also does anyone have any suggestions on the type of gear for a Witch Doctor would use? Like Legendaries or Sets for any type of bonuses?

Also I do plan to make it have a good amount of magic find... Any tips for that?

No I'm not a MF fan boy but it does help and plus it seems interesting and it pays off and it is pretty easy to balance damage, survivability, and Magic Find if you have the right gear...

Basically, any builds, gear tips, anything for the Witch Doctor that can help me... Post it here please. Thanks

You can check out my gear under my profile, but if it isn't up to date, this is the skills I recently switched to.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#biVTUY!acg!abZYcY (Act 1 Build)
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#WbiTUY!acg!bZaYZY (Act 2 Build)

With the gear I have on, I can comfortably go through all of Act 2, though my summons tend to die more frequently. If I have proper CC gear, like 6% chance to freeze let's say, I would do far better with my Act 2 build in stopping mobs completely from attacking.

Check out this nifty guide under the Witch Doctor section:

This is my build & gear: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/BEAST-3276/hero/5443601
Good for MF Inferno Act 1 & 2, a bit difficult for Act 3, not possible for Act 4.

This is mine. Was able to beat the game with it. At this point, I'm going to focus more on all resis and mf while trying to keep my dps or improve it.

edit: for some reason it is not showing the correct stats. My crit chance/dmg is higher than shown...as well as my dps. Not sure why...
