Hey all first post here. Not sure if I posted in the right spot so if I did moderators don't be afraid to boot me somewhere else
Anyways down to business. My bedroom, roughly 12'x13', needs a theater setup. I am a somewhat recent high school grad and I am finishing my first quarter at the community college here (planning on transfering to a four year school) so I don't have a lot of cash BUT I do want to start building up decent home theater so the plan is to gradually buy different pieces to eventually fit it all together into a home theater.
I am going to start with a projector then move up to the audio equipment. I have done some research and compiled what I have been thinking. All of my A/V sources will be straight off my XPS laptop I have (HDMI/S/P DIF Digital Output). Receiver and center I am hoping I can get for Christmas and I plan on buying the front channels right around then. Until I can get that setup I will be running the projector off of my laptop and all of the audio will be through its speakers or my current cheaper speakers.Projector
Optima HD66, but I am planning on whatever hits rock bottom on Newegg this Friday. Any other recommendations would be great. This will be going above my head and the bed.Screen
Need help here. Thinking of doing DIY, but I have read most yield subpar results yet I don't have cash for the expensive stuff I have seen around.SpeakersFront Channels

I have no clue, some help would be great. Something cheap (200-250$ would be great) with HDMI input/output and enough juice to power what I am thinking about.Cables
