With that small of a screen I would definitely go with a gray screen at least .8 gain. As far as tab tensioned it is the only way to be sure (but not guarantied as some have ripples anyway) the screen is flat. Ripples in the screen cause a distortion that some notice more then others and is most obvious with slow pans across the screen.
