My new graphics card, a Gigabyte ati Radeon HD 5570, arrived today, and it quite nice.
It's a bit more powerful then my last, and a damn lot cheaper, but it has been a few years since I bought it.
So not only can I play Starcraft 2 and Vindictus again, but my artwork will be that much better for it.
I did notice that my old card did tend to scream in pain whenever I did art.
Hopefully this one can bare the strain a little bit better.
