Hey Guys!

Would you take a look at this build.. Its an upgrade build.. I have an existing Hard Drive and micro atx case.

Looking to play starcraft 2 on Normal settings with no lag of course. Its a secondary computer so really just looking for a great budget card.

Better motherboard, better VGA, only 1 RAM bar to leave a way for further upgrading. The PSU might be overkill, but there's a deal for it right now, so I took it, too.
