I REALLY want to start PC gaming and I mean it! Just can never cope with the graphics, all my friends keep telling me to jump onto this game & Guild Wars! Seeing expansions yearly just proves they want their fans to enjoy the game to full extent and never be bored of it! But god am i jealous of those people :/

I like Starcraft. I have played all three games (Starcraft, Starcraft: Brood War, Starcraft II : Wings of Liberty) and I liked them a lot. But, I have expected more than a polished visuals and new units in Starcraft II. Starcraft II is great and fun to play, but I feel like there were not that many revolutionary changes to the gameplay itself to justify the price tag. Look at Dawn of War franchise for example. Dawn of War I and II are similar but different from each other. And for the record, I know that: if it is working, do not change it.

I loved Starcraft (and Brood War) so, so much but the graphics requirements meant I couldn't even think about Starcraft 2. However now my desktop is on it's last legs I'm thinking of getting a new one for Christmas, any ideas how much I'd be looking to spend on a desktop/laptop that could run it well?
