If you could just merge a good nvidia logo with the second link, that would be rad.

How patient are you??

I'm actually at work (haven't had a day off in two weeks). So it would have to wait until some of this craziness subsides...

But I have some ideas...

i didnt know there was a 5th annual graphics contest.. i dont even remember 1-4... but anyway heres a quick 10min blend i did, wish i had more time.
http://www.highdefforum.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=5000&stc=1&d=1267376884 (the forum resizes and reduces the quality when uploading files, the original is better in quality and is 1200x800)

kamspy
02-28-2010, 12:11 PM
EddieDZ takes the early lead! Using it right now.

awol, I'm very patient.


For anyone wondering, my native desktop resolution is 1440x900.

Good! :lol:

That helps! I can build directly to that size then. That way you're not losing anything in the process.

I'm currently using Eddie's as my wallpaper, so they will be used an appreciated.

Thanks a ton Eddie! I love it. I just centered it instead of stretching and it looks pretty good!

again when i uploaded it the forum automatically reduces the size to 800x and reduces the jpeg quality alot in order to keep the file size down. i mean right now the file size is like 15kb!? my original one is 630kb LoL. i can email you the original? again this was just a quick mock up too, didnt have more then 10mins to spend as i was heading out the door.

I'm a big fan of the pictures of the exposed CPU guts like in my second link.

If you could make the nvidia overlay just a bit more transparent so I can get some of that color back it would be awesome Eddie.


I'm 100% photoshop illiterate. :(

neeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrr

In fact I'm looking for a new Vista Ultimate key. Anyone know of a reputable dealer?

I'm not messing with 7. The only BSODs I've ever had in Vista were from bad RAM.

awol
03-01-2010, 09:07 AM
I think this is a little closer to what you were looking for right?

It's not to 100% of your screen size I don't think... but it might be. I'm too tired to think!

Very nice awol!

Ummmmm..... Yes, but it'll be rezzing it up which will likely degrade the quality a bit.

I'll post in a moment...

Oh, and PM me your email for the actual file.

You're both wrong...

My sidebar obscures the Nvidia logo when it goes full screen!:crying:

I'm gonna tineye that AMD image and see if I can find a higher resolution one.

Yeah, I probably should have mentioned I have a sidebar. Look at the pic I posted of my desktop and you'll see what I mean.

Ok, so do you want it to just have a black bar down the side for the widgets to sit in?

I was bored, so here is my entry..

Let me know if you want the full size version.

Oh, and anything can be changed,, i.e. brighter green, brighter chip, etc etc. I kept it dark since it is going to be a desktop wallpaper.

What's the deal?

Do you have a legitimate copy that you purchased and you just can't find the box with your PID?

I only have one key and I can only update one of my computers to SP2 for DX11. I'd like to buy keys for the rest of them just so I can get that one update, but apparently you guys don't want my money.

Just figured I would throw a couple others out there. I'm a photoshop junkie, so I always love a good PS challenge. :busy:

Oh and the photos used are native 1920x1200 just in case you ever get a bigger monitor, but its easy to put them in 1440x900.

kamspy

I know my sidebar will infringe on the nvidia logo on the one on the bottom, but I like them both.

Maybe try that design with lighter tones. I like the AMD and Nvidia green but maybe swap the darker greyscale for the opposite. I'm starting to feel like I'm jacked into the Matrix.
