I'm not "insisting" anything. All I did is mentioned the specs of the display I am going to get for my projector. I came across some extra cash today so I might get both a graphics card and the display for my projector. It appears different people have different opinions on graphics cards. I am simply trying to make an informed decision on my purchase. I don't doubt you or other people who have posted know what you are talking about. I am just trying to get past the personal bias people might have and get the best card for the money I have. What would help is if someone would specifically tell me what specs are the most important and which ones don't matter as much. I am not totally computer illiterate just behind on the technology (my last graphics card purchase was about 10 years ago, I remember when a 64mb graphics card was top of the line).

CUDA Cores/Shader Pipelines, then clock speed, then vRAM amount.

I think you're making a mistake with the "DIY" projector. You can't take a 720p monitor panel and turn it into a projector.

I suggest buying a 720p projector. They have them for very low these days.. about the price of a cheap monitor.

I all ready have all the parts except I broke the monitor I had. The one I am looking at buying is much better and not very expensive. This is not a high end setup and I was happy with the results of the previous display so I'm sure the new one will be even better. I will probably use it mostly for watching movies and my lcd for gaming.

Again, I think it will look horrible.

But it's your money.
