    I am buying a projector that can do 1280x720.

    1) Do most modern video cards support this? (my 3 years old radeon does). I am thinking to build another system with PCIe and GeForce 66000 (probably Gainward) and I want to be sure they support this resolution.

    2) Do most newer games (e.g. Doom 3) support this resolution?

    Thanks.

    yes and yes :D

    most of the newer games support this ie splinter cell 3, HL2, Far cry, Doom plus a host of others. some can be registry hacked to do so ie NFSU2, COD.

    Thanks!

    I see you have a good PC and the consoles. Which one of the 3 produces better quality graphics on the projector?
