Oh, you're swapping out your system part by part? Well, I would recommend you buy the mobo, CPU, and memory together so that you have as little downtime as possible. Then you can upgrade everything else one at a time. I would probably upgrade the mobo, CPU, RAM, and case first. Getting the big stuff out of the way is always nice . This way, you don't have to transfer all of your new hardware to your new case piece by piece.

SC2 really isn't that taxing, though it does seem to enjoy quads. My friend is running a E6850 Core 2 Duo with a GTX 260 (both stock) and has close to 60 all the time on ultra at 1900x1200. With MMO, you tend to want a faster spinning hard drive, which the Spinpoint F3 will fit perfectly.

The one suggestion I would add is to do your best to up the graphics card budget. If you can find a cheaper motherboard, you should be able to get your budget up near $175. At that price point, our For Sale section would offer a lot of GTX2xx series cards and those will outperform the 5770. You won't have DX11, but you can always upgrade the gpu a year or more from now if DX11 offers something you want/need. I don't believe a 5770 will cut the mustard when games really start rewarding DX11.

For the post above me the card would have to be higher than a GTX260 core 216 to out perform the HD5770. Don't go out and buy something like the GTX210 and think you have a good card.

This combo deal is a great buy for you. You should still be within budget with it, but shipping might push you tad bit over $800. Still, this is a great buy.
