the GTX 460 will play SC2 at 55+ FPS, with the OC i7 it averaged 61FPS at ultra 1900x1200. considering SC II only uses two cores the OP can achieve better then 40 FPS easily with some light OC. http://www.techspot.com/review/305-starcraft2-performance/page7.htmlalso, how does the 5770 offer similar performance to the GTX 460?
Ah, sorry. The 40+ was a guesstimate, hence the "+", will edit.
I do recall the HD5770 to be very close to the 460 on that bench, guess I looked at the bench of 1900*1200@ high:
The Nvidias do pull ahead of the ATIs on ultra, hmm..
