    Is that true? Will I need to build a new PC just to play SC2? I have a 2006 Mac Pro with a pair of 7300GT's, but rumor is that card is not supported.

    What the hell.

    It's true. Here are the official requirements for the beta:

    Those unsupported cards may work, but Blizzard won't provide support. I don't believe that there are explicit checks to prevent you from using them.

    I find it ironic they explicitly mention hackintoshes. :)

    Sean, you could always find and flash a PC 4870.

    It's stupid. My partners 2006 iMac has a 7600GT 256MB that runs Portal under Bootcamp perfectly, yet it magically becomes unsupported under OS X. Ridiculous.
