What will the computer requirements be for the new Starcraft?
I have a PC with a vid card, but not the highest RAM, and a lappy which actually has a faster processor, decent RAM, but no dedicated graphics card. I'm concerned one or both might need an upgrade to play Starcraft II, which comes out July 27th.
Whether or not you will need to upgrade all depends on what you have now.
