To simply play starcraft 2 on the highest graphics settings, you won't need $1500.

Also, do you already have peripherals? Monitors etc.

And which country are you from?

starcraft 2 is one of those few games where a CPU greatly affects performance.

youll want at least an intel i5, but you could get away with a heavily overclocked i3.

with current PC games, it isnt at all about how many cores your CPU has, but how strong each individual core is.

Intel core i7 3770K
MSI Z77 Mpower motherboard
Nvidea GTX 680.

This would be a start. With your budget, you could easily fill in the blanks and have a great system.
