My have a M2R32-MVP Board that can support an AM2+ but not AM3 cpus. I have a 700W psu that I think should be able to handle the GTX460. I just read quite a bit about CPU bottlenecking the GPU since SC2 like other RTS games is more demanding on CPU than other games. I am wondering if I will see a bigger difference (in terms of FPS) with a better CPU or GPU. Sounds like the GPU is the way to go til I can afford to upgrade my mobo, memory, and cpu. I am currently playing at a resolution of 1680 X 1050. Thanks your advice
have u played the game in your current setup??
your CPU is fine & GPU should be fine too.
Run fraps while playing the game and then decide.
my old PC with X2 5600+ with 4200 IGP runs game at 30fps with 1440x900 @ medium settings (shader and post processing is set to low though)
