processor is fine.

Starcraft 2 is not a super graphically intense game so you do not need a super powerful card. A good GPU for your system to keep it balanced would be either a HD 5770 or a GTX 460.

Also how big of a power supply do you have? You will need at least a decent 400 to 500 watt unit.

Got 500 Watt unit, got enough money, but what do you mean with ''what kind''?
Im a noob.

i mean what type of memory you have. for instance... i have 4gb's of corsair XMS3 DDR3 ram running at 1600mhz dual channel kit.

if you have enough money i would suggest a top end graphics card. an ATI 5000 series or Nvidia 400 series.

i have a gtx 470 myself and there isnt a game on the market i cant run on max seetings with phys-x enabled. they are about £230 for the card
