So far I have these components:



What other components should I get if I want to play starcraft II on extreme settings?

Need help deciding how much RAM I need, which video card, hdd, and which power supply could power this rig.

I'm looking to spend around $500, I don't know if it can run scII on extreme settings though.

Hey Jaylim0512, thats funny I just recently wrote a simple article on choosing hardware for SCII:

It can highly depend on your budget however, but that processor would be able to essentially do SCII on extreme. Looking at the components you chose here I am guessing you are on a budget, but that motherboard looks to have good reviews.

For an example of the other parts that would be a good fit for your build:

I would recommend minimally a Radeon HD 5770 graphics card to do SCII extreme, unless someone else thinks otherwise.
