Is this system any good for cheap gaming build but mostly for starcraft 2. Trying to spend at least as possible. I already have a case and HDD. Anything that I could change for possibility for upgrades?

Ouch the GTS 250 though a refresh of the 9800GTX+ is both more cooler running and eeks out a tad more frames Also hell no to TT TR2 line of PSUs!

Conclusions
Thermaltake TR2 RX 750 W is, according to our methodology, a flawed product that must be avoided at all costs. It can’t deliver its labeled wattage at high temperatures, but this is not the worst of it: ripple and noise level are way above the maximum allowed when you pull 80% or more from the unit’s labeled capacity (i.e. 600 W and above), overloading your components (especially electrolytic capacitors from the motherboard and video cards), which can cause your PC to present an erratic behavior (crashes and random resets) and, under extreme conditions, damage components.
