    I tried searching but didnt have much luck

    Im trying to get Star Craft 2 runing on full detail and for some reason its not able to on my current setup.


    AMD Phenom quad core 2.20GHz
    8 gigs ram
    750W power supply
    ATI Radeon HD 4890 with 1 gig DDR5 Ram

    I have friends with lower specs that can run this game on full detail but for some reason I cannot, so my question is this. How do i find out if my processor can be upgraded? I stupidly bought this computer from Futureshop and dont want to buy a new processor unless I know its going to work. The serail number on my comp is AMD5100-E530sA, im not sure what motherboard is installed on it...

    If anyone can enlighten me then please!

    Thank you
