Steam users can buy avatars, frames, and profile backgrounds with Steam Points through the Point Shop. You can earn points through purchasing games and other items and contributing to the Steam community. Head over to the points shop to see how many points you have available. The translation of dollars to points is 100 points for every $1.00 spent. 

Steam users get points for any game, DLC, hardcore, application, soundtrack, or in-game item purchase. You can exchange these points in the Points Store for profile and chat customization items. The available avatar frames range from 500 to 2,000 Steam Points. Here’s a list of what’s available in the Points Store at the time of writing this:

  • Portal Blue: 2,000 Steam Points
  • Neon: 2,000 Steam Points
  • Portal Orange: 2,000 Steam Points
  • Dragonlore: 500 Steam Points
  • Akihabara Accept: 500 Steam Points
  • Cerberus: 500 Steam Points
  • Bone Metal: 500 Steam Points
