I'm looking to buy (within the next month) a DLP projector for PC gaming and a few movies. I'd prefer a "standard" PC resolution like 1024x768, and I want to spend less than $1000.

I'm using my Acer PH530 for gaming and love it. Although I'm using it with my PS3, I'm sure via PC would be very similar. It does have HDMI in and runs 720p native, 1080i upscaling. Oh yea, and I paid $599 plus shipping via Amazon, awesome price and product.

Mitsubishi HC1500, it's really bright, which makes it great for gaming.

It normally goes for $999, but it can be had for less if you hunt around a bit.

I almost bought the Mitsu 1500 but went with a used panny AE700 my buddy was selling. Id go with either one.

Look at the sharp XR10X thread. XR10X-l and now there is a XR30X being talked about.

All the images shot in the links below in my signature are off of the 10X.

Around 600 bucks…. XGA projector.
