This is what I have so far. What are your thoughts on what I have so far and also suggest some graphic cards that would be good. Looking for something in the 150-200 price range. Basically want to play starcraft 2 on highest settings.

Thank you

EDIT: Also could you guys check and make sure everything works together? I'm still very new at this stuff and don't understand much of the jargon.

i guess since your budget is 150-200 id pick up the 756mb version,

Is there any difference in the different brands?
alot of people love EVGA, and the feedback on newegg for the EVGA is pretty high, but really not alot of difference, except for maybe warranty
