I'd pass on that one, unless you really have a five burning a hole in your pocket, really close to your no-no place.

Is steam screwing up for you guys? It's not rendering the pictures correctly, etc.

I've had some problems with the Steam client these days. It works most of the time but other times it just sits there trying to log me in. As for the pictures not rendering properly, I believe there are a few very long threads on the Steam forums which detail the same issue.

Mine's been pretty solid, might have to refresh the page once every week or two from it not loading properly, but other than that, no major problems.

I had this issue not too long ago, I ended up reinstalling steam (I moved all the apps before hand), though I think there is a dll you can delete that might fix the issue (once steam repairs itself).

Yes, it was happening to me a few days ago where it was showing all white, lots of broken links and pictures. I believe I just restarted Steam and it fixed the issue.
