Denon x3200w vs x2200w

I'm trying to decide between the two. Fry's currently has the 2200w for 457 and the 3200w for 547. I don't plan on having any use for a 2nd zone in my setup. I have it in a dedicated theater room that's isolated.

I have a 2160p projector with a computer/roku outpuing 2160p to it. Is the video processing of the 3200 worth it? I'm currently using MadVR with near max settings(GTX 980 TI) on my computer so I don't think the video processing is necessary. I don't think the 10 watts per channel is worth the extra hundred dollars. I currently have a 1912, so either will be an upgrade in wattage for me at this point.

I'm in the same boat as you. But one thing stands out to me about the 3200. It has pre outs for front speakers for an external amp. 2200 does not. If you will never use an external amp then get the 2200. If you will, get the 3200.

You have to call customer service to get it to work or go instore. Frys web sales experience are from the last century. Also, x3200 has 7 channel pre outs not just fronts. I have x3200 and would definitely spend extra to go for it.
