    Dear Sir,

    If you were to award me the Big Green Frog :respect: Sonic edition 760mhz 1gig 8800 GTS :cool:, since I am currently running 775 DUAL CORE with AGP, feel free to throw in an Abit ip35 PCI-e capable Motherboard as well. :D

    I myself like green obviously, and the current look of the Sonic overclocked 8800GTS card you may award me :cool: is also rather snazzy.

    My only suggestion is for you to ride this Big Green Frog wave, the frog is catching on in incomprehensible fashion, so catch this momentum and put the Big Green Frog :respect: on everything, ATI, Nvidia, everything Palit makes from this day forward should include the Big Green Frog. :respect:

    If you do not award me the Sonic 760mhz 1 gig OC 8800gts card and Abit ip35 motherboard, I will remain loyal to Palit regardless, and probably get a 9800gx2 someday if destiny determines it relevant, however the free 8800 GTS 1 gig 760mhx OC Sonic and ip35 Abit motherboard would be the obvious and most desirable path. :cool:

    Since Palit (painter's palit) can be a wide spectrum of cards, how about a tie-dyed or rainbow PCB. There are a few guys around here that would love a rainbow pcb.:laugh:

    Awesome idea! Clear substrate FTW! With intergrated LEDs! Anyway being serious, the purple PCB looks alright from several pages back. You guys just need to get rid of the holographic sticker and do what I said earlier! Same colour sticker background as the fan so it looks more high quality!

    See the colour scheme of the "quote" button? The blue should be the blue used on the PCB and the speech bubble's yellow/gold on the cooling fins. Topped off with a white fan and white background sticker with the palit logo on it - no need for anything holographic.

    You could also consider, Black PCB, A light blue for cooling and a ice blue transparent fan. This should go well with the solid caps that have the coloured tops. Looks rather nice. Keep the DVI outputs Blue as well.

    :shadedshu No offense.... but dont suck up. At least contribute something than ask for a new GPU. See the most I want is just at least one ounce of my Ideas implemented (at the least I dont want to see the holographic stickers anymore).

    Signing up here on our forums just to try to get free stuff isn't going to fly bud. I'll wait and see if you actually CONTRIBUTE before I do anything.

    Maybe your a bit jealous of my response, I did contribute, I suggested GREEN or continuing the theme of the snazzy looking Sonic series with the additional incorporation of the Big Green Frog. Also if you check my other posts I have been loyal to the Big Green Frog :respect: both here and on other forums long before this contest was announced mam. :cool:

    Sorry, please dont lie to us. You joined on the 1st of April 2008. Thats way after when the competition was announced. I'm not buying your loyal rubbish, you've just been asking for the GPU-and asking for more.

    I can call any manufacturer the best in the world and add their avatar, but would I be loyal? Especially if its during a competition? No.

    So lets say you win the competition. Firstly you DONT ask for more than they put up for grabs. If you don't have a mobo to run the card then, TOO BAD. You got the card for free anyway! They don't need to give you a new motherboard.

    On a side note how old are you anyway? 14?

    Really mam, I am not concerned about opinions. I have been a member of another forum since 2002 and I have many posts that I can show Palit Guy from long before this contest was announced, where I proclaim my loyalty to the Big Green Frog. So please worry about your own response and don't be jealous or critical of others. I haven't said a word about your suggestions and you should give me the same courtesy mam. :cool:

    Its obvious isnt it? :laugh:

    Sadly though, rainbow colour schemes are a thing of the past in PCs... maybe back in the P4 Days but its out of fashion now. Now we just want single coloured colour schemes.

    WOW, as a matter of fact I joined here because a search on google showed a post from Palit Guy, and I wanted to know about a Palit version of the HD 3780x2. I didn't even see this thread until reading a post with a link from Palit Guy in the thread I originally posted in. Whatever, I have posts showing my support of the Big Green frog long before I joined here. Anyway sorry Palit Guy, withdraw me from the competition if these people can't handle it.

    :eek: What happened to ur PC o_O

    Couldnt have said it better.


    Anyway so yeah what do you think of the idea of making the logo sticker's background blend into the colour of the fan, so it looks like as if the logo was engraved into the fan itself? I reckon it could make the GPUs look a whole lot better.

    Again, these off topic posts are starting to really bug me. I will just assume close this thread if it keeps happening. Don't say your "sorry" or whatever. Stay ON TOPIC.

    [/this is not a joke idea]Okay, modify my idea. On the fans, rather than adding a sticker, laser print on the palit logo instead. That way it will give a "quality" feel to the product itself.

    I'm leaning towards the Black PCB, Blue cooling fins (refer to the quote button), and ice blue (transluscent), or the translucent lime "electric" green fan. Finished off with the palit logo laser printed
    onto the fan itself in the yellow colour scheme :).

    [/this is not a joke idea]

    Ill try photoshopping after work.

    And note guys at palit. If you are adding a shroud, make sure the same colour is with the PCB and shroud.

    post 96 card 4... like that but as for a colored board... idk kinda wanna jokingly say tidyed... but kind of serious but 1. most likely not easy to do and thus wont be economical and 2. limit the audience further I would kind of find length wise strips to be neat... of course with colors that worked together and were "neutral" enough that economically they could be offered....
    3399cc and 99ffcc but thats just me...

    How about a very bright green one? I mean bright. That would look P.I.M.P. in my case! :toast:
