Yes at this moment is it, except I don't see your name up there, and I think we already established yours was created from a wallpaper so it would be in the RED, might want to redesign if you don't want to be disqualified, (http://forums.legitreviews.com/about246 ... ml#p163720)
oh and Astro's hasn't been added, but I'm sure it will be a green for go when it is :) - btw great job!

This HD 5870 is no ordinary video card. This was THE original video card, discovered years ago by (then) ATI scientists within a hidden chamber on earth. Said to be created by extraterrestrials millions of years ago, for decades It was kept hidden, it's power too much for computers at the time. Until now…

After the card was discovered the ATI scientists quickly got to work examining it. This is what they learned.

Incorporated into its structure is a small galaxy, named by ATI as the Radeon Galaxy.
At its core is a giant, powerful super-massive black hole. What resides on the other side of this mighty hole is unclear. Many believe an extraordinarily powerful chip lies at its centre, feeding on the decaying suns, or planets (no ones sure) trapped within the grip of the black hole. Curiously, the black hole does not emit red hawking radiation as one would expect but a bright blue kind.

Some speculate that the GPU's Eyefinity ability comes down to the fact there are three satellites rotating the core.
What is almost undeniable though is that the power of the card comes from the special properties of the satellites. The brilliantly bright-red dust from these bodies is consumed by the black hole which then uses it to power its growth and according to legend, the super powerful graphics chip located at its centre.
This dust was discovered to be more than just simple particles used to fuel the black-hole. In fact, it was made up of an element unknown until now. This element, highly radioactive, was subsequently named Radeon and once extracted and harnessed, became the bases for all GPUs' made by ATI and AMD in the future.

p.s. Everything was created from scratch (except the ATI logo of course). I didn't use any pre-made textures or images, etc. The font I used for the text is freely available for any use. O:)

Hi all (and specially dedicated to the "one" that created the so called copyright list LOL). The reason why i'm posting that the guy mentioned "Fire/water background image. Super low rez? Because stolen image was low rez?" is because my design is about 2.4mb and i dont know s**t about posting picture in this post. Afterall, for me this is the contest to bring out our creativity to create and not to babble and badmouth people's design. High res you want, then high res you get.

and to all, gud luck.

Dont let others that dont know how to appreciate another human being ruin your day. And afterall NO copyrighted material.

spreadsheet has been updated. Names won't be added to the spreadsheet until they're added to the main page article so if yours isn't on there that's why. Thanks to everyone who has helped clear the air. Even if the mods don't require you to, I'm sure it makes everyone else feel better about the competition.

You do have to give him credit for changing his art as soon as there was a question. Sometimes you need to swallow your pride just a little and trust someone as they make changes, that they are doing the right thing. Yes they might burn you but that's on them. There is no logic in going completely anal over this. That just makes for a miserable contest and angry people.

This is still suppose to be fun!!! We want people to display originality but they do need to be held accountable if they are cheating. So place someone on the list and if they make an effort than give them credit. If they are still cheating; well, that is for the judges to decide, but don't make this a drawn out fight.

Thanks

Sorry guys, i've had enough with this hyprocracy.

And to the so called "the.benevolent.one", i hope you win all the prizes, since you are the one that labelled all of us.

Looking through your blog there is some nice stuff on there, those at work may want to wait to get home to look at some of the stuff on there though.
