Fail. don't listen to that guy... Get at least something like hd 5770 for $100 after MIR. SC2 is also very cpu intensive so get the athlon ii x4 like others rec, then you'll be set

Actually, sc2 is very cpu intensive, but it only uses two cores. Getting a faster two core over a slower quad would be better.

And you should get yourself a gpu, sc2 also needs a fairly decent gpu to run it.

If I was the op, I would look in the for sale section here on ocn and buy my parts there. Could be a lot cheaper than getting it new, plus the money you save will go towards better parts.

Nope, won't cut it for sc2. In the very least you're going to want to look at a used gpu such as the minimum specs of "512 MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800 GTX or ATI Radeon® HD 3870". Having reused an old 3870 for a while w/ sc2 I can attest to it working pretty well. It got decent fps with medium/high settings @ 1600x1200.

Skip the tiger direct deal - it wasn't bad but the phenom II would probably be overkill for whatever gpu and screen resolution you end up with. I'd go athlon II x4 as was already suggested. AM2+ or AM3 motherboard, whichever you can get for the best price with the best rating/reviews and most features. Any 7200rpm Hard drive will work (I wouldn't recommend those giant "green/eco" drives that run at 5900, they'll be noticeably slower). Grab at least 4gb of midrange memory (either DDR2 or DDR3 depending on the motherboard type).

Power supply is your call, you could get away w/ a 450w but if the price difference isn't big go with something bigger, especially if you ever intend to upgrade to xfire/SLI (assuming your mobo will support it).

Only other items are the DVD drive (any will work fine) and a case. As for the case, if you're willing to get your hands dirty, go to a local pc shop and see if they're trying to get rid of any old (think win95) pcs. Most shops usually have a few of these clunkers sitting in some back corner, taking up space. It usually costs money to have these things picked up by the recycling guys so the shops will generally hand them over for nothing. You never know, you could luck out with a cool case that just needs cleaned and maybe painted - this has worked out for me a few times.

No matter what, keep your eyes open for deals and check newegg's open box items. They're great deals with the exception of open box motherboards. They're a mixed bag since you're not guaranteed to get all the parts with the board. I ended up with a nice new mobo and no back plate for my case once when I bought open box - just something to keep in mind.

^this is a good point, I can actually run sc2 pretty well on my cheapo Athlon II x2 rig (it does have a 4870 though).

You'll theoretically get the most FPS for your dollar by going with a Athlon II x3 though according to this link.
