Not what i would call high end. But GW games tend to scale back well anyway. Starcraft is more cpu limited then anything. You could push for more if you know that psu has the power on its 12 volt rails, but I have no clue the specs dell gives that thing. xerb July 11, 2011 7:16:43 PM I could easily run a Radeon 5570 1GB with a power supply with only 220w.
