2 years Professional Digital Designer including 3D modelling, Print Ad, Illustration*, and conceptual art.

6 Years overall experience in Digital Design, self taught.

2 Years Hi-Definition Camera Operator for narrative filmmaking, vertical advertisement, and visual advertisement.

6 Years non-union screenwriter

2 years Professional Copywriter


My Salaried nine to five is for the sister company to Guthy-Renker, LLC. The people who bring you Proactiv (The crap that P. Diddy promotes on television). 50k

I do freelance digital design work for 40 - 100 an hour depending on the job.

I camera operate with my own Hi-definition equipment package for 200.00 an hour on the weekends when I'm free or feel like it.

Between freelance and 9-5, my Annual Income is between 65k and 70k.

By the way, I'm not good at designing or illustration, either. So, don't ask to see any of my crappy-ass work.

Higher level shaders and higher quality silicone? I never heard of this, as of now, I'm thinking of getting an eVGA e-GeForce 8800GTX and overclocking it to 600MHz Core and 2000MHz Memory on stock voltages. If anybody can PM regarding the difference between the Ultra and GTX I'd greatly appricate it. And, please no...

PM's saying "NOTHING!!!!!!!oneoneone111!!!!1one!!111!!!!!!!!!1 !"

I read your posts before, cognoscenti, and I see what you mean. However, my question is, if a single 8800GTX gets 200FPS at 1920x1200 with 4xAA and 8xAF why would you need or want more FPS? You could easily run 1920x1200 with 16xAA and 16xAF, then, and still have like 50FPS constant.

Of course you don't actually need it right now but an overclocked Ultra WILL reach higher than a overclocked GTX.

If you benchmark you buy Ultras.

For the love of god, my X1950 Pro is still going for 229.99 on newegg. I can't imagine a 8800GTS being as cheap, or cheaper!
