    Best you'll probably get in that price range is a 9600GT or an 8800GT with a rebate.

    ...What more is there to say? You want a card between a designated price range. I've told you the best cards within your budget.

    Nobody can tell you how any card will handle StarCraft 2, it's not released yet. Be more specific with your request for help and you might get it :).

    Well, sometimes Newegg does like to hide their best stuff, I can't even find any AMD Opteron Barcelona's unless I search through every single AM2 processor without any other filters.

    8800gt, turn up the fan speeds, and over clock it.
    get the core to 700. youll be set

    The 9600GSO is not bad either. Whatever card you get, make sure you have an adequate PSU. That being said, what are the specs on your PSU? Post information from the sticker on it. This is what a typical PSU sticker looks like.

    correct me if im wrong, im not so great with anything past the 8800s. but are the 9600s as stable. i mean are all the drivers good, and does the card run smoothly?

    Yep, based on everything I've seen reported, they're solid all around.

    I'd recommend this PSU as a better product compared to the Rosewill one. It also provides enough power for any system with any modern video card, barring any dual-GPU card.
