I'm not sure of this is the right place to pose my questions but here goes:

For his birthday, I wanted to get my boyfriend graphic art software or a graphic art tablet. I've been looking on Amazon for both things and there's software selling for $70 but this subject is quite out of my realm of knowledge. Do I need to buy something else to accompany it or what? Is it like the Sims and I need to buy expansion packs?

I'm leaning toward the tablet because I'm assuming he can hook it up to his computer, draw and transfer. Which is better? (If it helps, his computer is a brand new one and has Windows.)

Thank you!
