Best ever exists, some are more accurate, some more honest to the most ancient texts. I am looking for what is the most truthful to the ancient Hebrew, preferably the Dead Sea Scrolls, as they are the most ancient period. I am leaning towards the NRSV I hear it used the DSS but I want more footnotes. I want the Catholic one because it has more books than the non Catholic.
I am about to undertake a year long journey of dedicated bible study and refuse to use the KJV or NIV and I want to know what is the best English translation ever. I am going to buy it as soon as I figure it out and would appreciate any input at all. Also, is there any version that uses the Masoretic texts, the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Greek?
You might want to get with Disraeli and learn a few things.

I will not argue the point but my choice is always with what the majority texts will use in translation.
