More about starcraft build
  1. btw 6850 is abit overkill for 1280x1024
    maybe 5770?
  2. would it be worth it to get a better processer and a slightly worse graphics card or is that build optimal for starcraft 2
  3. do you need an OS? a fast dual core is your best bet for a budget sc2 build, as the game is optimized for 2 cores.
  4. So should I get the i3-2100 or a cheaper CPU
  5. again, do you need windows 7 or do you have it? this will determine if you have the budget for an i3
  6. I have windows vista so should I spend the money to upgrade also the i3 2100 looks good are the integrated graphics suffient to run starcraft 2
    Also what do you think about this graphics card
  7. I think ill use skullcrushers build except with the geforce gtx 260 any tips for building a computer for the first time
