  1. 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.
  3. i7-3820 and Radeon7850 ? What kind of pc is that ?

    has your answers.

    If this is mainly a gaming rig, wondering why you are going X79 instead of Z87/Haswell (or Z77/Ivy).

    1600MHz RAM is the norm today.

    Wouldn't touch a no-name PSU like that - recommend looking for a tier 3 or better from this list http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx.

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