$500 budget SC2 Gaming/Streaming Build

Last response: in Systems

Approximate Purchase Date: one to two weeks

Budget Range: $500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Mostly just SC2 at atleast high settings and streaming it at a good quality at the same time, also BF3 when its released.

Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Country of Origin: USA

Parts Preferences: Any brand is fine.

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

Monitor Resolution: 1280x1024 currently but when money allows plan to upgrade monitor to a 1920x1080 display.

Additional Comments: I would like to be able to stream Starcraft 2 at around high settings with no lag and with a decent quality stream. I would also like to be able to have options to upgrade when needed. I do need to upgrade my monitor eventually but a PC with solid performance is more important in my current situation.

Thanks in advance for any advice you give.
