Anyone know about projectors and 1080pHD

Recommended Posts



I presently use an XGA projector which creates a 137cm x 80 cm image with a throw of 210 cm. It is used in a darkened room ( the window blind is the screen ) . I play flight sims - OFF, FSX STrikefighters,and IL2 mainly.


Now that graphics cards can support 19xx etc resolutions ( I understand my nVidia GTX does ) I was thinking of upgrading to a 1080p Native resolution projector.

I was concerned that I would not be able to connect the output (DVI?) of the graphics card to the HDMI input of the projector.

I think now that I can do that via an adaptor- without loss of signal quality?

I have found some projectors which i think would be suitable



However, what puzzles me a little is that there are XGA etc ( much, much lower resolution projectors, like the one I have ) still selling for more than those above. How come?

Is there a downside in using these 1080p native resolution projectors with computers for flight sims, ( as opposed to using them for films? )


Is anyone here expert enough to give firm advice. It would be much appreciated.




I live in the UK
