I recently built a computer and I plan on buying Starcraft 2. I want to be able to play the game well at max graphics + AA @ 1920 x 1200 with a decent framerate. I am looking to spend < 200$ and have been looking at the 4870 and the 260. Would these cards be able to do what I need? Should I wait and get a DX 11 card? (I don't think starcraft 2 uses DX11) I only really plan on playing Starcraft 2. Any help is appreciated!

Yep, SC2 will be very CPU dependant, gotta make sure that is good before anything else. Also i dont believe SC even has AA unless you hack it, iirc.

Sc2 is still only single threaded i suppose they could make the game ai and other function mutli threaded later but so far the game is only single threaded but a powerful cpu is always good

RTS games have always been more processor intensive. The final game might have better processor scaling/graphics than the beta.
