S-video is better than composite if you have to choose. Even better use a PC for DVD playback. Also called HTPC it is an entire forum just for the HTPC.
Since it is not yours yet just set on a table and see what size you get. Want it bigger go farther away, smaller closer to the screen. Try to avoid using the electronic keystone adjustments and similar. Using that can introduce artifacts. Move the projector instead.
Get it as dark as possible.
If you later want to have PJ yourself, go look at LCD, DLP, and used CRTs in the low price range. A used CRT these days gives the most bang for the buck. Handling such a beast is a different story.
I have also seen the Plus piano and Yamaha DPX-1 both are very good, but suffers from rainbow.
Everything is a compromise.
