He just learned an expensive lesson.
Some friend really.....
hahahahaha people like that shouldn't own a computer
Being that stupid must be painful! And that card must have cost twice as much as the Dell he put it in!
Have you a link to the original thread?
Has to be fake, no-one could possibly be that stupid...spending all that money and putting it in a Dell...
It is a fake.
http://www.tech-forums.net/showthread.php?threadid=68275 is the original thread.
I'd say fake.
That image can easily be photshopped. The guy seems really cool about the fact he just cut it all up, so its either a fake, or his friend was playing a joke on him.
^^ Most of the people on that forum are retards! I mean, look at dark-sniper's post... It doesn't even try to make sense!
Clearly fake. If you have as little computer knowledge as he did, how do you know to buy such a nice card? And he adds an excuse as to why he cant photo it, when clearly the truth is he cant photo it becuase it doesnt exist. The next point is, if you really were stupid enough to buy a card worth more than your computer without first checking its compatability, why install it yourself if you have no experience? And why try and cut something that is clearly just s snazzy pattern? NOBODY would take a knife to something brand new and expensive without first consulting a manual/professoinal.
If you bought a 2gb flash card for an old digital camara that takes SD cards would you start dremeling it?
this has been on about 4 forums i go to and the main feeling is that its fake and that its been shopped.
no one could be that RETARDED......could they?
It was shopped on an original white backbround then the wood background was placed underneath to make it look hard to shop
methinks fake too.
Its gotta be a fake, you cant be that F***ing stupid (or can you )
It has to be a fake simply because no one would be that stupid. Surely?
Hard to tell, but here's what I've found:
Here we can see an enlarged section of the "cut". Point 1, this looks like a cutting "mistake"; IE: the blade slipped a bit and took an extra notch out. This is the same for point 2. Now, at point 3 we can notice another cut, yet there are no shadows. I would agree that it is flat and maybe even slanted away from the light source, so all shadows are invisible from this angle, but if you look to the left of point 1 you will notice that shadows are cast from identically angled edges.
At point 4 notice how the line is too "crisp", it doesn't seem natural. This is a normal side-effect of when you are changing the background of an object. Straight lines are often enhanced and look very un-natural.
Point 5 is interesting, as there are two glaringly obvious things wrong here: lack of shadows, and un-natural lines as observed in point 4. The line that runs top-left to bottom-right is over-pixilated and looks enhanced.
And just to prove a point...

Really easy to fake, even without Photoshop.
Original card image (snatched from Google Images):
Original table image (also from Google):
Then, I magic wand-ed the card and pasted it onto the table image. I then filled the shape of the card black (for a shadow) and pasted another image of the card on that. Then, I ofset the shadow and lowered the opacity. Throw in some noise, Gaussian blur, and a resize, and you have a spoof:
By the way, this was done with the GIMP; it would look better if I had Photoshop.
COme on, nobody can be that stupid...
