It won't, but it also depends on your cpu and resolution.

The processor will be more then enough, but you will still get lag in Starcraft 2 when there's large combat. Just the same, Civlization V may lag once you are near the end of the game (or met up with other AI players.)
You'll get good framerate on high though.

Well, try it out. I never used a 4870, I'm basing off of my 5770 and Athlon which perform less then your setup.
With Civilization V, my CPU gets throttled after playing an hour. Your cpu should be better off for this, the same for Starcraft II but only in large fights like 4vs4 or higher where you may experiance lag with units attacking.

I have one and I can max both out at 1920x1080.

Yes, or at least almost yes. Just don't crank the AA up.

Dalta, the lag in SC2 is more often a network bottleneck.
For example: Bunker Wars lags a lot even if I have over 50FPS.
A lot of people playing SC2 have dial-up! :lol:

SC2 doesn't support AA.
Not natively.
