I agree with those card recommendations for your price range and wants of your graphics card. Watch for Black Friday or Cyber monday sales. The relatively hard to come by but well priced HD 7850 1Gb would suit you very well IMO.

I wouldn't change CPU to the A10 either (not worth the hassle/cost).

As an aside, everyone should keep in mind that SC2 is a very CPU intensive game (especially late game in 3v3 or 4v4), and fps can often become CPU limited late game, resulting in lower FPS regardless of the GPU.
