StarCraft II recommends NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460

If you think you have to shell out over Php15,000 for a GeForce GTX 470 to play StarCraft II as it should be played then you might be happy to know that a sub-10k GPU will do.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 is a Fermi-based GPU that is aimed towards the mainstream gamer. It is a sweet spot I might say if you’re looking for a nicely-priced card without sacrificing performance at all.
