Sorry if I included any useless info, or forgot to include info, I am FRUSTRATED with my bad FPS, I am in the SWTOR test, and I LOVE the game, even at 5-10FPS! All I want is the ability to run it at 30 FPS or so...
Facts known: I need a new Graphics Card (unknown how much it'll cost)
Facts known: I need to make sure my motherboard/powersource can handle it.
How do I do that? :/ Tell me more. D: And tell me more I have to do to prepare for SWToR, if there is anything, I played the weekend beta, and its AMAZING! even at 1-10FPS.

1. Your motherboard can handle any graphics card you throw at it, as long as the computer was made in the last 10 years (PCIe 1), and has said slot (almost all do).
2. You're going to need to buy a new PSU, at least 500~ for entry level gaming cards. Compaq and other manufacturers that develop machines with integrated cards rarely go above 300ish watts with their included PSU.
3. What processor does your computer have? You can find it by right clicking "My Computer" and clicking properties.
Unfortunately, your best bet will be investing in a new computer. With that processor (no matter how awesome of a video card you get) you'll struggle to break 15-20fps on low resolutions, even less in raiding / pvp situations.
