Typically you buy a screen for the room, not for the projector. Rarely is a projector too bright, but it often can have weak contrast which is somewhat helped by a dark screen, but at the cost of the highlights.
I generally think a white screen is the way to go as do the big three manufacturers (DaLite/Draper/Stewart). In a properly darkened theater, with dark paint on walls and ceiling, and dark carpet, a neutral white screen is the best performer.
On a budget, I just get the Silver Ticket screens in white and call it a day.
