StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty packshot image
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.

It works fine on Win10 home x64, so I don't see why not. Windows 10 is listed as a supported OS on the homepage too.

It doesn't really make a difference. It's a RTS. You're going to be more worried about that zerg army comming for you than about the way the light reflects in your Command Center.

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.
