In your budget range you're going to have to settle for for Medium graphics in SC2.

Not all GPUs are tested in every game. There are some new GPUs that haven't been tested at all and they 'guess' at what type of performance it should give based on other types of benchmarks or comparisons with similar GPUs.

"The following games list shows all notebook graphic cards (GPUs) sorted by the approximate performance (similar to the notebook gpu benchmark list). The fields contain average frames per second (fps) values for each game / setting combination. If the framerate is sufficient for fluent gaming (>25 fps), the field is painted in green. Otherwise, red for stutterings and yellow for an unsure prognosis. Furthermore, all fields without values are interpolated to convey the approximate gaming performance (brighter colors). The results are based on many different laptop reviews with different hardware. To see the detailed results, visit the GPU page or hover over the values with the mouse".

And "Note: With slower components (like a slow CPU) the gaming performance may be noticable slower" explains why you can sometimes see a lower ranked card show yellow when a card below it might show green.
