I think you will need an 8800GTX for this bad boy. and the Pixels might be a bit big for PC gaming no? 1920X1080 is great for a 32" but 65!? no way pixels will be too big to enjoy!

Thats why theres an optimal viewing distance for TVs. Different manufacturers will recommend different distances from there TVs. But even if you were sitting 7 feet away that would still be a massive screen.

But my 24" Dell with the Z5500 does just fine for me. All I need is a new graphics card!.... Then I'll be set!

My cousin has a projector with a 110" screen and a XBox 360, PS3, and a PC connected to it (I know, what a prick huh?). It's pretty awesome as long as the room is dark. We sit about 15' to 18' or so from it. I don't know what resolution it's capable of and I haven't seen any PC games played on it cause his is a laptop and not even a good one at that. I know it looks nice for surfing and watching movies though. I think as far as big TV's go (above 42") a projector is the way to go.

It really kind of depends on how you look at it. A projector isnt for everyone. Many people dont have room to even display a 100" screen and like you said the room has to be dark, many people dont have dedicated theater rooms or in some cases sunlight may not be controllable. Also many HDTVs are now coming out in 1080p, infact most LCDs and more and more plasmas larger than 40" are coming out in 1080p some LCDs even with 120hz technology.

HDTVs typically, but not always the case, have more inputs for more components. Also for those who dont have home theater systems or want to have them running, most TVs have speakers built in.

So really depends on the consumers needs.

That 65" is way over priced, I have a Mits 65" DLP with HDMI for under 2K. I've also game on a 65" and it looks great, good for driving games.
