The guy who drew the dragon and angel design told me he will stay, so that's at least one.

You will have a 4890 that is uniqe man. I would be stoked if I'd win a ATI Rage with my design (if they had fan shrouds that is).

to be honest, i've looked at designs and really, there is only a couple of really good ones. so, its just my opinion, but i think they have extended this thing to see if someone comes up with a better design because ... no offense to anyone , but this isn't a forum of super duper artistic people.
post this on conceptart.org and you will have a mountain of awesome designs. they might not understand what "HD4890" stands for, but they actually know a thing or two about design.

I tell you what, there have already been so many submissions and so much time for artists to come up with a design that I don't think that the extension is really needed.

There are countless awesome designs that could be used for the card, how can anyone judge something like that? In the first few pages alone I kept thinking to myself, "That's the one. No wait that's the one. Oh man I want that. Oh man that's the winner right there. Oh crap look at that one. "

Really great submissions. As an amateur photoshop user, I'm very humbled lol.

The problem is 90% of the submissions so far are illegal. I wouldn't give up hope yet stink.
