I don't tend to look at things that way. Then again, I own two $7K+ bicycles, and have 6 figures worth of wine in a 10' x 10' room. You can either afford things, or you can't.

I'd get the projector first, mount it, and see exactly what size image you can safely throw on the wall before ordering a screen. Just to be on the safe side.
