Looks like he did it with a plotter and roll of vinyl. You can either get a normal cutting plotter or you can get a printer one. Either way is just as nice, used to have a small sign cutting business on the side a couple years ago.

jetboy623: wink.gif I get the point. When I'm 22 I should have all of my degrees. Then I'll build some computers that I just don't need graduated.gif.

Darr3n: I sent you a PM.

Shrak: I did it with a plotter. At work we have a printer/plotter but I like using the plotter better. Cuts better I think, and quicker to get going. I'm trying to do some vinyl cutting business on the side, it's been quite a bit of fun. Great having a nice boss.

When I started mine with just a normal plotter too, I got it off craigslist from a sign company that was going out of business for $400, made that money back on the first sign job I did, lol. It's a great little side business to do, and a fun hobby as well. Money comes quick with it, see'ing around here I can get a 48" 20 yard roll of vinyl for about $80 and make $1000+ on it easily.

Shrak: There's an old plotter in the back of the sign shop I work at, one day I'm going to go in and see if it works. If it does, maybe buy it off my boss. I've been only make small stickers and the like. I have a website, I should need to get Google checkout on there. I love looking at our vinyl catalogs... I'm thinking of wrapping my next computer case.

It's been a few weeks but I'm finally back on track! I purchased a FX 8120 and a Crosshair V yesterday (along with a new desk). I have a test bench (from CaseLabs!) in the mail to start setting this new rig up.

I've thought about keeping Vera close to what she is now, and simply donate her AX1200 and 6970 to a new rig (that will be called Jake+Olive despite numerous better names). I would simply buy a new case, power supply, and GPU for Vera. This is more so I can have a desktop that's working while I work on Jake+Olive (I know it's a lame name). I've also had some rethinking about the parts that will for one drop the overall price of the new rig.

What do you think about Crossfire 6970s? I'm thinking of getting a 7990 for Vera. I do not want to Crossfire 7970s because of the price and also that I'm interested in the DirectCu II (despite its hefty price tag). I'll have my tax returns in a week or two which will be nice. That makes that $600 price tag of the 6970 not look so bad.

I will be updating the front page with new parts soon enough. If you have suggests on how to cut down the price of the rig advice is awesome!

I got my Case Labs bench in today.

Smexy motherboard!

Next week I'm going to be hopefully getting my second 6970 and a PSU to trade out with the AX1200 from my other rig that I want for this one (I'm getting a X-Series 760w). I'll be using my old little OCZ 32gb solid state for a bit.
