I want to play Starcraft 2 on Ultra will this system do that.

Only component I do not need is a monitor I am planning on using My Vizio HDTV as a monitor. WILL THIS WORK? and what do i need to make it work?

So.. For the build this is what i have come up with Budget is right around $800 this includes Windows 7

Cpu & Video Card : http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Optical Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

OS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Will All these components be compatible? Will they be powerful enough to run SC2 on ultra settings. Are there any other parts i will need? any suggestions on different parts? Sorry I am a first time builder and don't know a ton about all of this THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!!!!

An i5-2500k. SC2 is pretty CPU intensive.

That's what I thought you'd say the i5 pushes it a little out of my price range. How big of an improvement do you think I would see with th i5? Is the $100 worth it if I kept basically the same build?

It's a very big improvement but a quick google search reveals that a Phenom II x 965 can play SC2 at ultra. Good luck.
