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 =)

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.)
