StarCraft® II

Some Computer help?

I'm quite the avid PC gamer, but I'm pretty well, stupid with computer parts and the such. I greatly enjoy SC2 but I'm having some performance issues, I cannot run the game with settings that are not on "low" for the bigger battles. *Yes, my current PC is a PoS but, I wanna play planet side 2 so ordered a new processor/graphics card*
Would something like this http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-2048MB-Graphics-02G-P4-2643-KR/dp/B0086UXQES/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1353786134&sr=1-1&keywords=geforce+gt+640 be good enough to run SC2 and Planetside 2 on medium-ultra range settings? (Thanks in advance to those who took the time to help me out!)

The video card is good enough but I doubt your CPU is but can't say for certain since you didn't mention it.

I apologize, I also plan on getting an Intel Core i5-2500K Quad-Core Processor, assumed it would take care of my CPU issues.
Stupid me, didn't even see the GAMES, ENTERTAINMENT, AND TECHNOLOGY forum option and posted it in general -_-

How odd. Said the last poster in this thread was Hibachi, but the post showing just above mine is this one: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/4926494182?page=2#21 complete with the Diablo 3 portrait.

Edit: Hibachi's post here now shows fine, but his post has replaced the one on the Diablo 3 forums, like so: http://i.imgur.com/kKx5V.jpg

Yeah, I reported it to be moved here because I thought you'd have better luck here; there are people like Hibachi who hang out here specifically to give good advice on what parts to buy. In General Discussion you might not get any replies, and if you do they might not know what they're talking about at all.

Well, if you can get a screenshot of it post it here: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7200051793#1 as I didn't take one before it started displaying correctly here.

No. My friend's i7-3770k + GTX 680 gets 30-60 fps ON MEDIUM.

Your friend is probably forcing high-level of anti-aliasing
SC2 performance tanks badly if you do... hell, most games do

Sorry not to specify, I was talking about planetside 2. Of course sc2 runs on ultra easily and most people don't force AA.
