Yes, but how many GB of VRAM does it have? And is it DDR3?Awesome build. The first time I saw this, I was wondering why you were taking pictures of an actual video card. The fan is perfect and I'm digging the microfigs. The tires make great capacitors too.

Okay, that's brilliant. You've done a fantastic job at capturing the details and feel of a real video card (much to the point that, like B6, I did a momentary double take.) I think my favorite little detail is a toss-up between the connector pins and the external ports.

Wow. I was totally fooled by this. I was just like...why is BZP talking about a graphics card...

But that is amazing. I'm still trying to figure out how he made the fan, though.

I thought this was real at first too. :P


But anyway, I love how this looks, especially with how detailed it is. I hope it does really well in the challenge you're entering it in.

I thought this was a Lego shell, with actual computer tech bits in it, as though you could shove this into your tower and it would whirl up. Despite the fact that it is not, still a great creation. I'm amazed at how nice it is to look at, considering it's a video card. :P

I have to admit i was rather confused at first.. Then i was even more confused... Now i am all 'Ah-Ha!'.

But really i don't know squat about this form of technology but from a thumbnail it really looks like what you would expect a microchip-type-thing to look like..


Though for some odd reason i must know.. Is that a lego compass in there towards the front of the model?

If you interact with one of my characters and I don't respond or acknowledge the interaction within a day, send me a PM. Odds are I missed or did not see the post.

DDR3? Nowadays you want GDDR5 in graphics cards, at the least :P.
