Arrow So OT give me some input on what set-up TV/home media system to buy for my new place!

Hi I'm 5 years old and just got my own place, I recently bought a brookstone HDMI projector and a 70inch projector screen from Best Buy and the quality is alright, but feel like it's a huge hassle to plug things up because of all the ugly excess wires laying across the floor, and not to mention the little projector sits on a tripod while connected to my laptop because it's not mounted to the ceiling (Can be a good or bad thing depending on how you look at it)

I liked the wow factor of the projector and got it mainly for get togethers with friends, but I'm not sure if I should just keep that for the cool factor or go for a 50+- inch TV?? Input?
I don't know anything about TVs at the moment, can someone recommend a decent one to get without breaking the bank? Remember I'm only 5.
Oh and I don't actually watch TV, this is just for Movies, Music Videos, and Gaming with friends.

Oh I also got a BOSE home speaker system (Woofer and two speaker)
It was like 600 with tax, good buy or are there better options?

Any input on home media systems appreciated!

Drop that projector asap. Go with a solid 50-60" plasma.

also dump the bose system. if you are serious about this check out avsfoum

ehh.....
Brookstone projector + bose HT = fail.
First of all, if you are going to use a projector, use a decent one with proper mounting method.
If not, decent samsung or panasonic plasma gets my vote for home theater system.
I wont' go into the model# because I dont' want to break your 5 yr old piggy bank but around $1000 should get you a decent 55+" plasma.

For sound system, Bose would get my LAST vote...Cheap construction with no compatibility or connectability to AVR units.
For $600, as a starter, I would try Harmon Kardon 1600 AVR + Mirage Omni set up.

I should probably clarify, looking to spend less than 1500 for the tv and soundsystem, so it's more of just a tv set up and not a "home theater" haha

I like the BOSE just because I can hook up my ipod and have it running all day and it sounds pretty clean. Is the one you listed a better alternative? Are there better ones, because I love having a soundsytem for the place and it gets pretty loud
