it wont max it.. it will run it at very high settings but fsaa will have to be reduced.. on any rez over 1680/1050...
reason i know this. i have a 5870 which is slightly stronger than the 6870 and i cant max out STW

That game will brutalize any system on max settings I have a 580GTX and i7920@3.2 6GB DDR3, I run it on Ultra everything except High Unit detail no AA or advanced filters and it runs smooth with 2 full Ultra sized armies. (its weird the difference Ultra to High Unit detail makes, and I cant even tell the difference)

cpu wise yes, gpu wise no... overall performance for games, NO.
i would recommend you build an i5 2500k, 4-8gigs of ram, and something like a 6870 or gtx560ti or better.
