Budget $500 before or after rebates. System usage is for Microsoft office, internet, watching movies, hearing music and playing games (Mainly Starcraft 2 highest setting @ 1440x900 resolution). Parts not required: Keyboard, mouse, HDD, Windows 7. AMD or INtel doesnt matter. Future overclocking is a must and preferably a power friendly system. I mosty want to run starcraft 2 at full settings or almost full settings @ 1440x900 resolution).

4770? FAIL FAIL FAIL.

The 4850 is a better idea for less.
