Almost.
I had a system very similar, it had an 880g but an athlon II x2 processor. Basically SC2 even on all the lowest settings was ALMOST playable. The problem is on larger boards the frame rate could drop below 12. This held true even if I dropped to a resolution od 1024x768

You will need some kind of discreet graphics card to make sure that you get enough fps out of it. I went all the to a 5750, which is overkill ( I can run everything on ultra)

You will enjoy the game much more if you can get a separate card, though many of the missions will play just fine.

Also, $400 is a good price for that setup. Especially since it includes a copy of windows.

I doubt it can, at all. Almost anything should be better as this graphics card, including integrated in the processors graphics solutions.

Pepe,

If you read the system specs this IS the integrated solution. It is the 4250 that runs off the 880g shipset

Joe, if you read what I am writing you'd notice I mentioned integrated in the processor graphics - like in Llano and SB :) 
And I am not guilty that your new found cheap great deal can't run last games in highest resolution, on max settings and at at least 120 Hz. It just doesn't happen.
And this "bargain" is a complete BS, it's just money for nothing. Not for what do you want it for anyway. And I personally, am helping you to avoid it.

Well that is the system, or close to it that I was running. I would think the new Llano processors should run SCII just fine.

For the setup he is getting it seems that he would want an separate graphics card. ( at least that was my experience)

I agree that it is not actually a 'bargain' but at $400 seems pretty decent since it already comes with a copy of windows and a warranty. Since the day passed hopefully the OP found a system that will run SCII just a bit more acceptably.
