I'm looking to stream starcraft 2, and I am only on a 650$ budget. I know it is not that much but I feel it will get the job done. I don't need maxed out super quality settings HD stream.

i5-3550 & Team Vulcan 2x4GB DDR3-1600 1.5v $240.98

Total: $645.92 ($595.92AMIR)

That is the build I am looking at for now...

i have a 430 GT video card and a windows XP cd I can use.


Side note - Would it be more optimal to keep the current graphics card and use it on W7 or a better PSU?

Any help is good :)  Ty

You're in good shape with that system, but forget the old GT430. If your copy of XP is not an OEM, you should be able to reuse it.
