First off I'm on a 500.00 budget. Second its in my basement so it will be dark. Third my basement has a low celling of 6 feet and need to celling or elevated mount it. Forth it must fit on a 6x8 wall (6 feet high 8feet wide).

So with all that I will be using this for movies off Blu-Ray, playing games and streaming off xbox360, as well as cable TV with HD.

Is there a budget projector u can recommend or what resolution of a projector would u recommend. Thank u and look forward towards ur response.

I will suggest the BenQ W710ST. I have this projector and I love it. Blu-Ray movies look great, my pc and PS3 games look incredibly good. 3D is excellent on this projector on the pc. With a budget of only $500.00, I don't think you can beat this one:

I really like my LG PA70G. List is higher, but bought on sale at Fry's for less...I'm told they put it on sale often. Only 720, but looks good and 30,000 hr lamp life and contrast numbers make it seem like my CRT's. Of course LED lamp makes it so much better. IMHO
