if you have adobe illustrator installed, you could always go "effects>3d>extrude and bevel"

then play around with that until you get something to your liking.

You don't say what version of Photoshop you have, but CS has some pretty groovy Layer Styles that can be applied to text. Many of them are 3-D looking.
