Re: Dec 2009 Contest - Design Your Own HIS 5870 Video Card Art!

With that attitude, you can waste your time elsewhere. actually, I'm sorry...i'm just mad that I did make something, but I thought it wouldn't be good enough so I didn't submit it. but telling from the winning submissions, mine could have won. http://www2.picturepush.com/photo/a/2830330/1024/Pictur...

Re: Dec 2009 Contest - Design Your Own HIS 5870 Video Card Art!

> Peti1212, the 3d work I did was with 3dsMax and Photoshop for the texture work. A lot of the renderings where done with Final Render, a few with Maxwell. That's really cool. How long did it take you to learn 3dsMax professionally? I've been working with Cinema 4D for years now and got lazy with t...

Re: Dec 2009 Contest - Design Your Own HIS 5870 Video Card Art!

Ok, just so I'm on the safe side, I put together a quick proof of my contest design. Here is the process. I created the 3D parts in Cinema 4D, rendered it in Cinema 4D, and then used Photoshop to tweak it onto the video card cut out. I included a picture below: http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n44...

Re: Dec 2009 Contest - Design Your Own HIS 5870 Video Card Art!

Can we use copyrighted material? Just wondering because I though we can't, at least it would make sense not to use somebody's artwork on your own design unless you give them credit for it. That would have made my job a lot easier and faster...

Re: Dec 2009 Contest - Design Your Own HIS 5870 Video Card Art!

Alright, Photoshop to me is like taking a relaxing break off from work, so I found this quite fun. Plus to spice it up a bit, I created all the graphics in Cinema4D and Photoshop so nothing copyrighted is used. Alright, here is my entry: http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n44/peti1212/HIS-Final-3-Pa...

Re: Dec 2009 Contest - Design Your Own HIS 5870 Video Card Art!

Ok, I'm confused. Which way is the card suppose to be. I can tell how the die cut is designed however does it matter which way the graphic is printed? Or can we just post the graphic from both sides as one entry? then im doomed to not to get one of these or even 5770 or dirt 2 as close to the worst ...

Re: Choosing a computer monitor

Dell and Gateway has some very nice monitors. I had a 24" Dell monitor before and I was very impressed with it. Now I am owning a 22" Gateway monitor that has a many different connectors in the back as well as a mirror finish screen. If you want to go with a 24" monitor, I would pick this one. http:...

Re: Best bang for the buck?

Go with the 9800GT just like the others were saying. The performance over the 9800GS or the 9600GSO is noticeable in many circumstances. Plus if you get the 9800GT, you will not have to worry about having an outdated card as much as if you would get the other ones.

Ok, I have been working with filming for 2 years now, and i have some experience in standard and pro cameras. Depends on what you are looking for. The description you wrote down on the top is very vague. So what do you expect the camera to do? Do you want it to be Standard Definition or High Definit...

Re: Spore and Impossible Creatures

Yeah, just save your money, both of the games are waste of money. Not well developed, and gets very annoying especially in Spore when you have to create everything and customize them to fit your needs. 50 dollars for Spore is a waste of money, and the most I would give for that game would be 15 doll...
