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

I have updated the design in my original post (it's on page 12) and I promise that's the last update. I also included a bit about the "character" I used in my design (CyberMouse) and how I came up with the idea. Thanks again for a great contest and a great forum.

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

Re: AMD Releases Catalyst 8.2 Drivers for Download

The ATI driver CD crashed my computer so I just got done reformatting and it didn't goes as smoothly as the first time.

After updating the BIOS to ver F11 I then installed the video drivers off the ATI CD. Unfortunately, this crashed my system and now I have...
