Very Nice ccokeman!
I do not think I will buy it as soon as it comes out, but I used to be a huge fan/player of the original so I do look forward to playing it soon!

Glad to see my PC should not have any issues running it.

The nice thing that Blizzard has done is that they've described what each option actually does...not simply in generic terms, but specifically what each level of each setting disables/enables. As such, for those with lower-end rigs, you can easily determine what you can lower to grab a few extra frames.

That being said, I maxed it out at 1680x1050 with the rig in my sig and it ran perfectly smooth. On my laptop, I dropped it down to medium, which didn't look as good, but still better looking than Starcraft 1. :lol:

When you make it playable for a larger audience you have more people purchase it.
