    The print is slightly pixelated, I think I should have sized it bigger than 1280x800, but you have to be close to see it. All in all, I'm happy for $15 for a 12x19.5 print.

    well see i have some 16x20's that i can get for about 65 then a 22x24 for 75.
    you could probably use the 22x24 and do something elaborate with the matting.. maybe a marble mat or something. i also might have a 30x36 mirror that you could use the frame for and that would be something around 100 i believe. all this is plus shipping.. but ill be riding up to charlotte sometime soon and maybe we can work something out that way if you're interested.

    I'd need at least a 22x24 for the proportions to look right, since the print is 12x19.5, and I think much bigger than that would be overkill for this print. I'm going to mat it myself, so the included mat isn't a big deal. I'm going to take it down to the local Michael's and pick out a color for it there where I can place the mat on the print.

    I'll think about it and let you know, thanks!

    It's actually a digital render for a video game. I'm not selling it, so I hope there's not a problem :o

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's out. I found it on Amazon.com for $39 the other day, didn't buy it though, my current video card would throw a shit fit if I tried to play that game :o

    Then I doubt mine would handle it either. :wtc:

    I want a new racing game. NFS:Unleashed just doesn't do it for me. :rolleyes:

    I have it. It just sucks. I'm not crazy about the tracks, and the whole game needs to be moved up several notches in terms of realism. It's like Midnight Club 2 except with licensed vehicles.

    The last racing games I've really enjoyed were Porsche Unleashed and an old EA one called Sports Car GT (which I can no longer find :wtc: )
