I mean how they design it and keep on updating it. The actual process of not on "splitting" and stretching but making it "work" with games.

Of course it isn't. Duh. rolleyes.gif The actual process is extending. It's rather simple like I said. Truth be told its like uncovering parts of a picture that have been hidden. For example, you can zoom into a certain part of a picture. Other parts would be left out. You simply add the other parts in eyefinity for games.

Then what technique and coding went into it?

 

All the steps from one image to 3 or more with the game mechanics working with it.

Of course I don't know that. I just gave a basic overview. I probably should have said that the general idea is easy to understand.

xD wonderfull, I'm glad you guys are getting into the specifics! As it does sound cool

 

SO i got an email today from New Egg saying they processed my Cancellation and there will be 3-5 days w8 till I get a refund... if that's true I NEED a refund in 3 days otherwise the build we put together will need to be reconfigured, since prices have increased and decreased on stuff

 

Still though I don't think it'll take 3 days to refund money that was never actually taken from my account, as the memo for the charge stayed a memo it was never dated and thus the money never left my bank

The only thing that will change really is prices and availbility. I do not know how much longer it will take for the 6950 to continue to be in stock. RAM and everything else is not an issue.

YEA, money is BACK in my account Step dad is SOBER! I can place my order It'll be in Friday we can build and BAM move on. He's got an anti static strp so I'll be ok. I might buy the $10 screw driver set just to have some time in the future when I do my first cleaning, which I should most likely do once every two months, as I said my pc's stays pretty clean since I have it elavated of the ground

 

 

Darn I'm still getting declined, might have to call my bank tonight and see what's going on -.-

I'll have to wait till 12:00 tonight, I called my bank and they told me that the fund from new egg where not yet released, now online they are

 

I've already got the card, as I said New Egg Confirmed my offer, they'll hold the parts for 5 days.If I don't make my payment within the 5 days it will be cancelled and I won't be able to buy that nice card.

 

So long as I make the purchase by freaking Thursday [which is the 5'th day] I'll be alright

 

Once again I should be able to make the purchase tonight around 12:00, which is when the bank released and tranfers it's funds. I assume my online account is reflecting a status that will be after the update, as there is an * at the end of my balance meaning it's "new" SO once more again at 12:00 tonight we'll try to get this thing going >.> 

 

The irratating thing is the 948.30 order is showing on my account, the women at the bank confirmed this. Now Online that order has been dropped :/ 

 

Also is it just me or do all Bank Tellers have nice voices ;3, beautiful girl I'm friends with [gorgeous voice] worked at a bank, then went to phone services for a company ect... ect... xD it must be some kind of consipiracy lol 

 

But yea I've got till Thursday, if I don't pay it by then, then some lucky jerk bag is going to be gettin my card, but again... only 3 hours till I should be able to make the purchase! 

 

 

*edit*

 

OH SNAP, I've got 5 buisness day from the day the order was placed [a Saturday :D] that means I've got till friday and that money better be the heck there by then ARGH, SO stressFULL >.> 

 

TO XENOBLADE FOR 3 hours

A bit off topic but I need some help with that bridge I talked about in our little "chatroom".

 

http://www.overclock.net/t/1260208/balsa-wood-bridge-competition-help

 

This isn't cheating. No rule stated I couldn't gain outside help.

 

On topic, when do you think your stuff will arrive?

 we three the BUDGET GAMER WIZARDS OF REASERACH AND CHEAP DEALS, shall LIVE ON, and I'll keep this thread alive through all stages on PC building, from Reasearch and Purchase, to the Build, to configureing Drivers, to the First cleaning BYOUNDS

 

Anyways stuff should be here at worse by like Next Monday, my bank account reported that the memo for my first order was released. Sadly though the bank it self won't actually release it, freeing my funds until tonight it seems...

 

So in 104 mins [wow same time as yesterday] I'll check my account and see if the funds are free, then try to purchase this order again... if I can't then I've got Till Friday to Call me bank again in combination with the "ATM" department at my bank so get this order Verified...

 

@Bowei

 

Dude you don't even wanna know and... OMG WHY THE HECK Do i have the FREAKING Bleach OP in my .Flac ost list -.-

 

... Omg it's part of the Eureka 7 Best record wow... that's kinda lame... some one ripped of some one elese...since we don't like Bleach we shall claim that Bleach stole the song from Eureka 7... in addition it could just simply be the same band in each song [and I like this band, nice tight bass lines!]

 

Also, I'm looking forward to getting about another $1000+ at my grad party, from my real dad and our guests... $170 of that is buying a Cowon D3 [we won't tell mom... but she'll find out about the purchase anyways so what ever]

 

In addition I'll also get a Xbox 360 USB for my rig since it's more versitile than my Logitech Dual Action... so there's another $200 down the drain, but again I'll be selling my Nintendo DS Lites to cover this purchase so she'll get over it

 

BUT YEA STRESS FULL, also I saw a commerical for Dragons Dogma... I lul'd since it was shown in Mid Lvl gf :3, cuz I knew that my PC would have better GFX than my step dad's 42" LCD that he paid 1000+ for >:3

 

Granted it's a Tv [Lawl I should use it as my monitor one day for the heck of it xD] 

 

STILL YEA I'm stressed but it's ok, when I boot up DiRT 3 in High Def 1920x1080 it'll be worth it! Sames goes for NFSW... the other game I'm looking forward to playing

 

but YEA time to wait till 12:06 again tonight -.- 

 

 

@HybridCore of OCN

 

don't worry I've been on stock for all of High school, so I'm sure by the time your get to your Senior Grad you'll be upgrading along with me :3, but sadly the system you build will cost the same as mine and have at least 2x specs >.> that's technology for you, although the irony though is as perf advances so do games... meaning in theory we'll still have simmilar rigs... of course in praticality yours is better but you'll be playing current Gen games [like I will] and you'll run at teh same level as I will [MAX]

 

So in one perspective it's depressing to buy a rig that will be out dated in what 18months or so? But on the other perspective all things are realitive... 10 years ago some kid spent $900 to play AoE 2 Conqeors Expansion on full gfx settings and in the Highest Res they had back then [which proably was like 1920x1080 or close]

 

Either way, your time will come Hybrid... and when it does... you'll make the hard core rig builders crap their pants!

Yeah Win 7 has general drivers already pre installed with it. It will get you up and running. Microsoft Update will instal most of your drivers and then you can go online and do whatever. Never have I heard of a new mobo not being able to connect to the net due to lack of "generic driver".

 

Win update drivers aren't the best but you don't need anything fancy for 80% of your drivers.

 

If you haven't seen what 1080p on a good HD monitor can do.....wait and behold your eyes!!

 

 

Oh and please get BlackLight Retribution and play with me...very good free online FPS game!!
