    Cliff, really great job on the theme.

    You are correct, shades of yellow (gold) work really great on dark themes. I use those colors often on my trading charts.

    Red, blue and green only on black background strain the eyes.
    Thanks:)

    Yeah, I spend my very hard earned cache for TV, and monitors, or even laptops with IPS, screens(I like real colors, and not overblown ones that make your eyes bleed), I even try to calibrate the screens I can, but certain colors cause color bleeding and make text hard to read.
    This is one reason Microsoft prefers to use grays(dark, albeit gray) over true black, as black also bleeds over to adjacent pixels, because a group is turned off, and not individual pixels, where grays all pixels are on and controlled to different saturation levels.

    By the way, since I put the themes and download links in the Afterburner thread where they belong, I cleaned(deleted) up all my posts about it here, before Steve had to decide to move them or delete them.(I decided this on my own, so )

    If you are interested if & when I make others, or want to be informed about updates to Afterburner/Riva Tuner, just subscribe to the thread by either making a small post, or use the thread tools dropdown that's under the page numbers

    Notice for EVGA card owners


    EVGA removes the Guest RMA option from their website - Only registered cards can receive an RMA | OC3D News
    It is also possible that this move is designed to prevent miners from bulk RMA'ing their graphics cards. Cryptocurrency miners run their graphics cards at high loads under 24/7 workloads, creating a situation where these users often have cards fail before their warranty expires. Under cryptocurrency mining workloads, GPUs often fail at a faster rate, which in turn costs GPU manufacturers a lot of money when they are forced to send replacement units.

    Great job EVGA! Put even more sticks into the gears of miners! Let Gaming cards be used as gaming cards (and for AI calculations) and make ASICs as the only option for miners. :)

    Long live the death of GPU assisted crypto currency mining!
