    Starcraft 2 system requirements
    Here they are...
    Mac Requirements

    Mac Minimum System Requirements:

    * Mac® OS X 10.5.8, 10.6.2 or newer
    * Intel® Processor
    * NVIDIA® GeForce® 8600M GT or ATI Radeon® X1600 or better
    * 12 GB available HD space
    * 2 GB Ram
    * DVD-ROM drive
    * Broadband Internet connection
    * 1024X720 minimum display resolution

    Mac Recommended System Requirements:

    * Intel® Core 2 Duo processor
    * 4 GB system RAM
    * NVIDIA® GeForce® 9600M GT or ATI Radeon® HD 4670 or better


    So my macbook has 4 gigs o ram and Nvidia 9400 M, think it will run smoothly if I tone down the graphics settings?
    Who's gonna be playing this game?

    Specs:
    Late 2013 rMBP, i7, 750m gpu, OSX versions 10.9.3, 10.10
    I've already pre-ordered mine. In terms of playability on a 9400m, won't really know for sure until the game is released (unless there are some beta testers here ) I do know I hope the broadband is only for network play and not for single player (assuming they still have a single player story line like they did in the original)
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)

    Does Starcraft II support the 27" iMac's 2560 x 1440 resolution? I'm wondering if my $1700 iMac could run SCII at that resolution comfortably.

    Yes. You'd want the 27 inch version with mobility 4850 to play it at native resolution and max graphical settings though. Also do note that starcraft2 performs like garbage in osx compared to windows.

    it will have single-player, they're only releasing the terran part, zerg and toss expansion packs will come later. The sp is supposed to be really in depth

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 17" LED-Backlite display, 2.5GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB memory, 512MB VRAM, 320GB HD
    I have a 2.5 ghz, 4gb Ram and a GeForce 8600M GT, I am less than satisfied with it's performance running StarCraft II...In order to play smoothly I have had to set the graphics to "low" playing full screen at 1152x720 (which is sad as my laptops native res is 1920x1200!)

    Running Starcraft with 1 GB RAM
    Ok, is it even remotely possible to run SC2 with 1gb ram? like on the lowest of the low settings?? Im looking for some cheap 2gb ram to add to my imac so that it has 3gb of ram. my system specs are:

    Mac OS X 10.5.8
    2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    ATI Radeon HD 2600 256 VRAM

    If there is another specification you need to know please tell me. Oh is it possible to use the Galaxy editor with 1gb ram?

    mac box set
    Im looking at upgrading my macbook for the first time. I bought it in 2007. I know I need more memory, a new graphics card, and Apple said I need to buy the mac box set w/snow leopard since I never downloaded leopard when that came out.

    Anyways. Im doing this cuz I want to play Starcraft 2. Can someone please guide me on which macbook memory "card" and which graphic card I should buy? Im not good at this kind of thing.

    I would like to shop for whatever you guys lead me to on craigslist or ebay to save money
    THANKS A LOT!!
