    Thats Burnout Paradise BTW, I love that game. Criterion provides excellent support for the game, the patches add free content to the game.

    That has changed since C2D. Now, Intel is just so much better for the same money its no question anymore of fanboyism. Just go with Intel or wait till AMD comes with something new again. Though it is unlikely that AMD will get out of this mess very quickly. Intel is working on a future generation aswell which is also very promising.
    And no I'm not an Intelfanboy. I used to buy AMD aswell. Its just its changed now, with this generation of procs.
    What are you talking about? I feel as though you have put words in my mouth. Sorry if I am wrong. On my behalf, I am not a fanboy of any side.

    That is a questionnaire for the OP to give us an idea of what where and how his particular situation is for us to give him suggestions on building a machine to play UT3. You can't suggest 3 GTX280s to run tripple sli if the op only has 400$ to build a machine. So my point was for the OP to give us a little information, like a budget, for us to work with at suggesting parts etc.

    The term "FULL" HD is nothing more than a marketing gimmick, 2160p and higher are already planned.

    If you really must have the best quality you will need to look at DLP projectors that are labeled as 3-chip DLP. 3chip DLP eliminates the only disadvantage with DLP known as the "rainbow" effect. 3 chip system are very expensive compared to single single chip and I would not recommend for common home theater or business because of cost.
    However you plan to have a "commercial simulator", so I would think that you have already considered the possibility of 3d projection in the near future. Good DLP projectors can output at 120hz so that it is possible to project a 3d image at a solid 60hz on one projector. It is allot better quality than previous two projector setups and cost less to operate.

    This may be more or less info than you wanted but I hope this helps you on building your simulation room.

    LOL Zera, I have a similar setup

    Should of took the picture while the car was still thats on a 10 foot long paper sheet,its allot cheaper then a real screen

    Works great in dorms too
    Playing on the side of building is great too

    just a note to peg onto the guys telling you to spend 14 grand on a pc or however much.

    ut3 + sli + projector = bsod.
    a single 9800GTX will run ut3 max at 1920x1080 just fine
    for a system to run that you will need a 500w psu, a dual core 2ghz or higher (e8400 intel recommended), and at least 2 gigs of rams. dont forget a pci-e 2.0 capable motherboard.

    if you truly feel lucky you can try SLI, but if you do get a 780i motherboard. again theres no real need.

    8800GTX on dual monitors - 1920x1080, intel c2d e6600 @ 2.7ghz, 2gb ddr2 800mhz, 680i mobo, no overclocking, 99.9fps on everywhere but deck which i get 80fps on using max settings + 4xFSAA. every time i try to use the projector with SLI i bluescreen, of course it could be my drivers.. friggin betas!! XD

    oh and it does look great... i need a screen for my room though, that was just a test run on a white wall.

Any suggestions are welcome

    You ask advice on the Best, Well to be Honest everyones opinion[and thats what it is] is different, If you already have a projector, then I hope it is a Home Theater Quality, I can only reccomend what I know to be The Best, it will Work with a HUGE Screen but there are some unknowns, because the Larger the screen size the harder the load on the Video card/Processor/Ram/Motherboard/PSU which all go into the complex design of what you are asking.
    My Suggestion is first you have to decide How Much you are willing to pay for this system, because it will be expensive, if money is a object then there are options:
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Extreme Qx9775 3.2ghz
    GPU: BFG Tech BFGEGTX2801024OCXE GeForce GTX 280 1GB 512-bit x3
    PSU: SILVERSTONE ST1200 1200W ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply - Retail

    these are 3 of the best, with the PSU you will have to make sure it is capable of supporting all video cards with the correct amperage, this one is capable of 3 and provides 6 6 pin connectors=3 280 video cards
    Another issue is the Motherboards, the ones that support 3 way SLI do not go Higher than DDR 2 1066[I looked through Newegg], the better Ram choice is DDR 3 but you will sacrifice 1 video card.
    These are just options, in the end YOU need to do the research and be satisfied with the Hardware or you will Blame others for your wasted money, when playing games on a Projector[as my Brother Found out], if the Hardware is not Strong enough then it will be blurry and overheat[which you will need to make sure you have ample cooling as well], You have a lot of thinking and Planning to do, compare Hardware, do your homework and you will have a Great system, I hope this helps

    err projector = bad idea.
    you will have to spend a high penny on it if you want anything decent.
    the cheapest thing i can think of is a epson powerlite s5 which runs at 1920x1080 (it says 1440x1080 but its not, and the site just says 1080) and costs 500$ at sam's club or 600$ elsewhere.
    problem is its an LCD.
    LCD < DLP

    with any projector be prepared to replace the bulb yearly for 200$ (if you use it a lot, expect to replace it more)
    with an LCD projector you will eventually get the "blue smudge" which means the filter is going out and thats even more expensive... oh and you cant do it, a trained technician has to fix it, thats about 1000$ and happens every year, if your lucky you might pull over 2 years, but not with high usage time.

    i recommend optoma if your willing to spend the extra buck(s)...(sssss).
    newegg has the hd803 for 2500$

    if your really stupid, and you just won the lottery, you can buy a christie projector for about 15,000$ to 40,000$ , but they have a good image XD

    edit:
    commercial simulator? of ut3??

    I personally use a SVGA DLP projector, works very nice. It is not a native HD set but can display any HD signal and costed my 300$. The PS3 was more than the projector :-/.
    sorry, I meant FULL hd. Of course its been some time since I checked the prices, they probably would be a little cheper now anyways

    1. What YOUR PC will be used for. That means what types of tasks you'll be performing.

    UT3 - we know - help us help you

    2. What YOUR budget is. A price range is acceptable as long as it's not more than a 20% spread



    3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.



    4. IF YOU have a brand preference. That means, are you an Intel-Fanboy, AMD-Fanboy, ATI-Fanboy, nVidia-Fanboy, Seagate-Fanboy, WD-Fanboy, etc, etc, etc, you get the picture.



    5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are.



    6. IF YOU have searched and/or read similar threads.


    7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.



    8. WHEN do you plan to build it?

    remember to buy a 24" monitor (DELL 2408 24" has every port you will ever need). whats the use of all the power if you cant put it to use. ut3 @ 1920x1200 all max looks so hot.
