Sigh, you are being ignored by them. Stupid greedy Activision Blizzard... Try posting in the Starcraft 2 forums, other people might notice there and sometimes Blizzard check the forums so... Give it a shot, won't hurt. Really sorry I can't help...

cool. Well I've already bought most of the components the only parts I can't decide on right now is the SSD and the case! Additionally I don't want to spend 80 on windows 7. I can buy a serial key from ebay for 30 I've downloaded the windows 7 64 bit home premium iso do you think I will be able to create a usb bootable disk?

Components so far..

CPU
Intel Sandybridge i5-2500K Unlocked Core i5 Quad-Core Processor (3.30GHz, 6MB Cache, Socket 1155) CPU Cooler
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus CPU Cooler Heatsink Thermal Paste
Arctic Silver 5 3.5g Thermal Paste Motherboard
Asrock Z68 EXTREME4 Socket 1155 8 Channel HD Audio ATX Motherboard GPU
XFX Radeon HD 6870 - Graphics adapter - Radeon HD 6870 - PCI Express 2.1 x16 - 1 GB GDDR5 - DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort RAM
G.Skill Ripjaws F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL Power Supply
Corsair CMPSU-650TXV2UK Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 High Performance 650W Power Supply Case

Hard drive

Optical drive
LG GH22NS50.AUAA 22x SATA DVDRW Drive - Bare Black Windows 7



In terms of cases I'm seriously considering getting the obsidian 650D but I've also thought about the

Cooler Master Haf 912 or Fractal Design Define R3 Series ATX Case

What are your thoughts?

I don't know about you, but I would just buy Windows 7, getting it from ebay... Meh, the key could be a COA key, or something like that. Then again, I don't trust eBay... You're on your own on this one. Although yes, you can easily make a USB containing a bootable Windows 7 installer.

Its a nice rig so far. If you have the money to afford an SSD, then go ahead and do so. But they are pretty expensive. I would buy a 60GB SSD, and install Windows 7 on it and your most used programs (browser, Office ect.). Then, I would get a 500GB or 1TB HDD, to store your data on it. It all depends on how much you need. This way, you will get great performance at a low cost. Then again, if you don't need 60GB of SSD, you could get less if you wanted.

About the case, I would take the Cooler Master, its got VERY good reviews on Newegg, looks cool, nice cooling ect. If you don't like the look though, that's another question...

Anything else ?

Hey

What's a COA key?

For the SSD thats exactly what I was thinking of doing just getting a 60GB for the operating system/important programs. I've already got a 1.5TB external harddrive I was hoping to just use that or possibly take it out of the box and use internally?

The COA key is the Certificate of Authenticity, for Windows. It will display the serial number to be used for Windows if re-installing. It can only be used on the machine the COA came with. If you have a external HDD, you could rip off the case (which also allows interface via USB), and insert it into your computer.
