Home Theatre Build
I am looking into building a gaming pc that will be displayed through a projector. I have not picked a projector yet, but I was wondering what I should look for?
My build is as follows

Mother Board: Asus Maximus V Formula
Cpu: Intel: i5 3570K (Or something like that)
Graphics: EVGA GeForce 670 FTW
(If you need more specs please ask)

I was also wondering if I will have to SLI the GPUs in order to display on such a big screen?
The games I will be playing are ones like BF3

your GPU requirements are based on how many pixels you need to render, NOT on the size of the pixels themselves.

top-end projectors only go up to 1080p I believe. Your GTX 670 is fine; if anyway, its overkill if you're not picky about having >60 min FPS.

A larger 'projection' results in larger pixels, not more pixels.

Not entirely true... you can buy 4K projectors but they just cost a lot of money :haha:
