I would guess that you could handle high settings with that system, but not ultra. Before my latest upgrade, I was running it on high, and that was with an AMD quad-core 3.4GHz CPU, 8GB of RAM and a single nVidia 660 Ti SC 2GB video card, so my specs were pretty close to yours other than the RAM.

Starcraft2 isn't a hardware demanding game. It's about 3 years old. It can only use 2 cores of your processor because it only uses 2 threads. You can max it out on a lot less than you have.

If you still haven't bought that, don't! Thats not appropriate gaming PC - videocard too weak, CPU total overkill.
