I got a microsoft surface a couple months ago and just figured out I can draw with it, so naturally I spent the day drawing luchadeer instead of studying for my upcoming exams. I'm not much of an artist and this is the first thing I've ever drawn digitally so it's maybe not the best thing you've ever seen but I figured I'd post anyway.

Quick update to my original banners to add luchadeer. Honestly I prefer how they look without luchadeer but they are way less giant-bomby so this is my final submission I suppose. It's a shame I didn't have more time to do another set but oh well.

There's some really phenomenal stuff this year. Well done to everyone that's entered.

Just been playing around with adding luchadeer and static/video effects. Not 100% sure I actually like either. I'll come back to this in the next few days when I get bored of studying.

Still a work in progress but this is what I've got so far. I will probably update these a bit but I actually have exams next week that I should be studying for so I probably shouldn't spend too much time on this stuff.

Thanks everyone who responded. I've just ordered a 980 as planned. I looked at SLI but I really just want it to be as straight forward and simple as possible. As for the SSD, I really don't have a problem managing space on it, I just move games back and forth as I'm playing them and it works out alright.

Again, thanks everyone for the advice.

Hi guys, basically I'm looking at upgrading my PC but I really don't know a lot about this stuff so I figured I should get a bit of advise before I go spending my money. My PC is still pretty decent but I've got a bit of money saved up that I can spend and I wanna beef it up a bit before The Witcher 3 comes out.

Here's what my specs are now:

  • ASUS PBZ77-m motherboard
  • i5-3570K 3.40Ghz cpu
  • 8GB ram
  • 2TB HDD for my storage and a 120GB SSD with my windows and game installs
  • 520W power supply
  • GTX 670 graphics card

What I'm thinking of doing is just replacing the graphics card with a 980 (this one to be specific). As far as I can tell that card should be compatible with my motherboard and power supply, but again I don't know much.

I just wanna know if that card will work with my system and also if it's the best use of my money. Would I be better off getting a new cpu and a less powerful gpu? I have about $750 Australian (roughly $600 USD) to spend.

Thanks!

@mb: Valve takes a cut of every transaction on the marketplace and obviously the transaction stay in users steam wallets so that money is basically Valves. Having the gems be marketable was definitely not an oversight because as with all the gimmicks they do with their sales they make money off it.
