I'm sorry man, i swear i put a CPU in that list. Oh well, here is my CPU:

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K.

Will my comp still run SCII on Max?

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
