System Usage from Most to Least Important: SC2 at high-ultra, Other Games of lesser gpu requirements, surfing, office word
Parts Not Required: None
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.ca , tigerdirect.ca could be used but I find it more expensive
Country of Origin: Canada
Parts Preferences: Prefer AMD CPU (cost in mind), try to keep to main brands with components to retain quality, mid tower case, a hyper 212+ for OC
SLI or Crossfire: No
Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Additional Comments: I have no other components than a mouse and speakers so w7 home will need to be included as well as the monitor.. if you can get the build even lower than 800 with these guidelines then your golden but dont sacrifice quality please and thank you
looks like a pretty solid build, was looking at that mobo myself actually, only one hiccup is that the mobo supports up to 1333 and you put up a 1600 RAM but nbd ill just sub in a different ram thanks for the suggestion
SC2 favours Intel architecture. If you are concerned about cost, even a $90 Sandy Bridge Pentium would give you comparable FPS to the X4 955BE and it can also be overclocked (it will be slower in general performance though). And yes, the HD6850 is a bit excessive.
If you are thinking of changing anything, get a i3 2100 instead of the G850. You will get a ~3fps boost on Ultra for the extra $30 and lose the ability to overclock (yes they overclock like a bitch). A GTX550Ti would also work well if you wanna cut down more.
