I recently bought a desktop but I could barely play sc2 on low setting, it still lags a bit. I was wondering if buying this new computer will work to at least play on med/high setting or even ultRA. My friends told me that I could only play on low/med setting with the specs but they're not exactly computer tech people so hopefully someone can give me an answer.

Yes that Pc will play Starcraft2 at med/high settings at 1600x900 and lower.

But if you're going to spend that amount of money I suggest you build your own,for that price you can build a quality PC that will able to run most games at high settings.

thanks for the advice, but as you can tell, I know almost nothing about computers. It would be a miracle if I could find a decent computer for a decent price, let alone building one. >.< Thanks for the help though, I really appreciate it :)

This build will play every game at pretty good settings.I'm sure theres other builds that are cheaper.For starcraft this PC will play it at Ultra settings including AA and AF.
I have a similar build such as this, except my cpu is an athlonx3 440 which is slower.

Dont be scared of building one Kev, check section 4 out on this http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/288241-13-read-post...

Take your time and it really isn't as scary as you might think, you get a better pc for the outlay, you understand it more so you can faultfind and fix if necessary, go on, read up, learn a little more and take the plunge :)
