Whether it's a tricked out multimedia chair with heat and massage, lag-free surround sound system or highly customizable console joystick, gamers are always looking for any advantage against competitors. Surely one is being able to see them before they see you. And Acer's award-winning Predator Z850 Gaming Projector ($5,000) helps those efforts.

Placed less than 20 inches from your screen (or wall, as the case may be), it's able to throw a 120-inch image that's 50% wider than HD. That gives you a half-screen edge over your enemies. But not only does it produce a huge image from short distances, a 3,000 lumen bulb and 100,000:1 contrast ratio make sure it's bright and sharp too.

Although this powerful, edgy-looking projector sports plenty of physical video and audio ports, an optional Wireless HD-Kit enables lossless 1080p streaming. Just that much easier to set up your ultimate gaming rig.

Fire when ready!
