Hello all,

I am about to retire my old Hitachi rear projection and would like to move up to a projector for the bigger screen sizes. I have attached some pictures and also drawings to help some of you guys with more knowledge about the projector layout than me give me an idea on the best way to mount and also help me decide which projector would best fit my room. I watch a good bit of tv, especially sports, so I definitely would like something that can handle football well. Also, something that has fast response time would be nice because I occasionally play on the xbox. I was looking at the epson 8350, it seems like a good unit for the price, but am unsure of the different calculations used on where to mount.

Here are some pictures of the room, please excuse the construction.

Here are some crude drawings of the dimensions of the floor and also of the wall that I am going to mount the screen on.

As far as mounting it, I wouldnt be against removing those fans and mounting it on a rod coming down from the ceiling if need be. as far as screen size, I think I could fit at the most, 120" corner to corner, but 110" would probably be better.
