I'll be using this build to play games on 1920x1080, games like Starcraft 2. Any idea on what settings I can play on smoothly?

Thanks!

    Well my aunt could only hook me up with a GTX 460 2GB and she said even though GTX 560 would be coming out soon she wouldn't be able to get that for me until probably a year. I'll upgrade my graphics card in about a year though.
  3. Dude, where is the mobo?
  4. Its gonna be the Asus P8P7 Pro but it's out of stock on Newegg for now. My bad
