  1. Starcraft II Requirements

    I say a 9800 GT should put you in high settings. But if i were you, i'd aim for something higher that's only a couple $$ more =P like a GTS 250. A little more power than you need, but just to be safe lol.

    Now keep in mind these cards won't be supporting DX11 - but i'm assuming you don't want that (much less need it)?

    And everything else is fine, no worries there =)
  2. PC Minimum System Requirements*:

    * Windows® XP/Windows Vista®/Windows® 7 (Updated with the latest Service Packs) with DirectX® 9.0c

    * 128 MB PCIe NVIDIA® GeForce® 6600 GT or ATI Radeon® 9800 PRO video card or better
    * 12 GB available HD space
    * 1 GB RAM (1.5 GB required for Windows Vista®/Windows® 7 users)
    * DVD-ROM drive
    * Broadband Internet connection
    * 1024X720 minimum display resolution

    PC Recommended Specifications:

    *Note: Due to potential programming changes, the Minimum System Requirements for this game may change over time.
  3. a gts250 works well, my cousin uses one, as does a gtx460. A low end 460/768mb is about $50 more than a lowend 250/512mb (after rebates.)
