Starcraft 2 is split into three games, each one representing a playable faction.
Protoss, Terran, and Zerg. These three distinct and powerful races will clash once again in the fast-paced real-time strategy sequel to the legendary original, StarCraft. Legions of veteran, upgraded, and brand-new unit types will do battle across the galaxy, as each faction struggles for survival.
Wings of Liberty features The Terrans
They are the descendents of a disastrous colonization expedition launched from Earth centuries ago, its human cargo made up of dissidents and malcontents the government deemed expendable.
Forced to adapt to the harsh existence on the mostly lifeless worlds of the sector, the terrans are masters of survival.

I don't currently own this rig, but would it be sufficient for 4v4 HOTS games on Ultra 60fps? Assistance appreciated.

OK thanks. If you don't mind, do you think I could step down to a Radeon HD 7770 for this build? If there is no framerate difference I will do it.

The FX chip might struggle under heavy load, but I think ultra will work on light 1v1 matches.

Medium settings. My Intel HD 4000 rig ran Starcraft 2 at barely 30 FPS at medium, with a 3230M processor and 8gb ram. The res was lower than yours as well.
