    No worries,
    It will run at maxed resolution without a problem.
    Remember that SC2 is CPU dependent when it comes to the in-game cutscenes, so if you find performance dips, there it's not a problem. :)

    SC is actually very CPU dependant throughout, even during gameplay.

    That rig will make mincemeat of it 99% of the time though. The only way to slow it down will be to have literally hundreds of units duking it out on-screen at the same time, like in an 4v4 match on a really big map.

    Tell me about it. I see tons of forums where ppl who do 4v4 get slow comps and lag like crazy. :P
