Have a i7 930 clocked @3.8 but only have the one GTX285 card. Will the projector below work for me to run
a 100" screen in a dedicated little bat cave? I have a room that is 7 feet wide and 12 feet long that I intend
to use for a flight simulator using one flat screen for now.

projectorcentral.com has a handy calculator to find out if your projector will project the screen size you want with the space you have.

It's what I used to find that your projector can only project a 100" screen from a minimum of 10 feet away which means the 100" screen must be on the 7' wide wall which is impossible because at an aspect ratio of 16:9 a 100" screen is 7.25' wide.

Just check projector central and I did the calculations as well. The screen would be on the 7" wall , the projector on the ceiling about 12' back.From that distance I should be able
to manage a 80" screen. I was more concerned if the projector would be suitable with a computer and I believe that it will work OK for the short term. I'll upgrade to a better projector
later, maybe go with two short throw on a curved screen. I am limited in this space but it may be ok for what I intend to do.

Thanks for the reply btw.
