Plz list all of your computer specs.
Mointor and size,ram,cpu, and most importantly your power supply(make and model).

Off the top of my head i would say you should go with a 5670, thats within your price range

If you can spend a little extra, say about $30 extra you can get a 5770 witch almost doubles in performance.

$115 After Mail in Rebate

Playing Starcraft 2 with any of these cards should max it out on the highest settings,depending on what the rest of your computer set up is like.

Please list all of your system specs espcially your prossesor and Power supply/make and model.

I have a DualCore Intel Pentium D 930, 3000 MHz (15 x 200), BTC 17.2" 16:10 monitor, and a 500W Blazar Power Supply.

I now have a PC Chips P23G mobo with 1GB SDRAM and a Zogiz Nvidia 5500 256MB (and I almost didn't feel any difference with that card x.x)

And I'll get the Mobo I mentioned earlier, a SATA 1TB HDD and 2GB DDR3 RAM.

Yea i'd say your best bet is to go with a Radeon 5770,their cheap and performance is great.It would play Starcraft 2 on Ultra settings.I would also reccomend getting some more RAM for your CPU.

Thanks so much! due to the lack of money, I just bought what I said at the beginning, without the card. Fortunately I can play Starcraft 2 with low settings, so it's not a big deal for now. I'll make sure of follow your recommendation when I buy a card, though!

Well, any card higher than HD5670 will be held back by your CPU, means your CPU is the weakest thing inside your PC (Dual Core).
Already bought the card (5770)? If yes, it's okay, you can use that card into your next PC build...
