I have a room that is 14'-4" x 17'-2"  Ceiling is 10 ft.   I am thinking I could have a 100" wide screen mounted on the far wall.  I am mainly going to use it for sporting event watching and movies.  unfortunately there are windows however I plan on using room darkening curtains.  I am interested in what type of projector to get and what type of screen including model that people would recommend.  I don't have an unlimited budget but I don't want to get poor performance either.  Basically looking for a bang for the buck.  I look forward to your advice.

 

Thanks

There are other good ones as well around that price range, but if he is planning on mounting it on his back wall, even if it`s on the 14` wall, at max zoom, the image will still be over 130 inches:

If it needs to be installed on the back wall like that, I`d suggest an LCD projector (although I am preferential to DLP) like the Epson 3020:

As for screen, look into DIY screens using the Seymour AV Centrestage XD or new UF material. It`s not hard, especially after reading the forums here and gleaning some knowledge. I built my own and saved a ton of cash which I could then spend on other home theater goodies.
