It probably will be able to run it with all settings on medium/high and with everything else off

My 9800GT was able to run SC2 pretty well; the 8800 series is basically the same. If you could invest some money, I'd say try and find another 8800 for cheap and SLI them. Just my opinion though.

No need for a second GPU, SC2 only supports 1GPU and 1CPU(even you got 8 cores). I had a 8800 befor I upgraded to 2 ATI 5770 and the rest is new aswell. From my experience Geforce runs SC2 best. But one 8800GTS 640 was running it fine on 1920x1600 on high with not lagg what so ever.
