    I have a worse setup then that, I have an I5 overclocked with the same video card and RAM, and can play any game I've come across so far on full without an issue. WoW, SC2, SWTOR, Batman: Arkham City,Diablo 3 or ME3 are the ones I've tried.
    The generalist looks outward; he looks for living principles, knowing full well that such principles change, that they develop. It is to the characteristics of change itself that the mentat-generalist must look. There can be no permanent catalogue of such change, no handbook or manual. You must look at it with as few preconceptions as possible, asking yourself, "Now what is this thing doing?" -Children of Dune

    So much money wasted on high end workstation CPU, and it has few years old graphics card. Need to flip those around to make it worth the pricetag.
    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    For gaming, I would go with this one instead. Switched to the 2500K(great CPU for gaming) and grabbed a better and more recent GPU, and added an SSD. If you want to save money, you could remove the SSD, decrease the PSU wattage ( took 850W incase you'd feel like adding another GPU in the future) and downgrade the GPU.
    The case is personal preferrence, more common recommendations are the Corsair 400R and the Fractal Design Arc Midi.

    Edit: Just saw you needed a monitor too! Here are two recommendations:
    Dell U2412M $350 (IPS)
    ASUS VH236H $150

    570 was released 1 year, 2 months, 2 weeks, 6 days ago.
    I wouldn't consider the i7-3820 to be high end workstation but certainly overkill unless using 2-3 top end gpus, which obviously wouldn't be needed for sc2.
