I ran with 4x AA for a while and didn't really notice a performance drop.

That's because you have a 495GTX six.

I decided to get Starcraft II DD, but the Blizzard servers are getting hammered so gonna go out and see if Game will match the DSE price of 70AUD.

I have to say...

I bought this game purely for multi-player, but the single player campaign is really really good. You get units that you don't have access to in MP which is really nice, and the missions are really fun and unique. It's a lot more than just expand and conquer. I especially liked the one where you had to mine the mineral in the flood plain and then pull out whenever there was a lava surge.

I played the first 6 missions on Brutal difficulty which is pretty challenging even if you're an advanced player. I then switched over to Hard. I found that I am enjoying the game a lot more on Hard. Brutal was a bit on the frustrating side, and hard is challenging enough so that you certainly won't fall asleep at the wheel. Great game. On of the few out there that's worth $60.

I think I just finished that level, one of the achievements is killing the Brutalisk with the lava right?
fun times, I haven't tried but one of the challenges but I recommend it for the new guys. It really helps you learn the counters.
