Best budget setup for Starcraft 2

Hey, I am a big Starcraft 2 fan and Im looking to buy a relativly cheap PC, preferably as a bundle with the sole purpose to play SC2 for over the summer.

What would you say is the best and cheapest setup to play it maxed out at 1280x1024 ?

I live in the UK.

P.S. I did read tom's article on the graphics card comparison, so probably even a 9800gt will do me, problem is that was with a i7-930 which Im sure I do not need.

  6. Thank you, that build does indeed seem best.

    Just to double check it would play SC2 at ultimate settings at a comfortable fps at 1280x1024 and/or 1680x1050 ?
