I'm helping my friend pick out parts for a budget build that will be able to run starcraft 2 in ultra settings, and we decided to go with the AMD fX-6300 and the nvidia gtx 550i 2gb. Will this cut it? Our memory is 8gb ddr3 1600 if that matters.
while it is a good $55 more you don't have to worry about a rebate and if you plan to buy bioshock and/or Tomb raider you get them free. Which covers the extra cost and the 7850 performs much better than the 650ti.
