Default projectors for gaming

well sense a 42" is 1000 dollors and a projector is less or the same and the picture is huge(depends on things). i figured, hey lets spend money on a projector and play cod4 on a 10 foot screen.

but are projectors in that price range good for intense gaming?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824219045 for 1000

or something you pick. buget: highest is 1000 lower is possilbe will be showing ps3 gaming and computer stuff(videos, and gaming,)

You shouldn't buy a projector if your only intention is to game. The picture quality isn't comparable to a television, and you don't get a turner.
