Please rate give feedback. I want to stick with the 2500k because of the solid reviews, 3rd gen is still up in the air for me

Third gen is good. I don't quite understand why you are making a new computer though.

For SC2, you do not need to upgrade your system. Keep the $.

My processor cannot take SC2, especially large battles I like to play 2v2-4v4 and I have to tone down my settings low-medium to play "smooth". APU does not have L3 cache which could help a lot of games does it not? I want to change because I have the money and I have nothing else to spend it on

You won't need a quad core to run SCII. Just upgrade to a Phenom 965 BE and a compatible motherboard.

I'd like to but just for an extra $100 I can get a 2500k. $300 for cpu/mobo combo is a pretty good deal which NCIX has this weekend

I don't recommend buying something for what you think you will need in the future. Future proofing is non-existent in gaming.
