    How well would this Desktop run SWTOR?

    OS: Windows 7 premium 64 bit
    CPU:Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 quad-core processor with Turbo-Boost [up to 3.8GHz, 8MB cache]
    RAM:8GB DDR3-1333MHz SDRAM [2 DIMMs] (thinking of bumping this up to 10gigs for only about 50$ more)
    VIDEO CARD:3GB DDR3 NVIDIA GeForce GT 545 [DVI, HDMI, VGA]
    HARD DRIVE:2TB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive

    Mostly worried about the video card with these specs

    any estimations on the FPS I'd be able to achieve with these specs?

    Honestly, I have a crap graphics card and I run it at 40-50 fps, I would imagine you could have that at least on medium if not high.

    things u might wanna get

    8GB (4GBx2) ram (this is 4gb a slot; fill two slots with 4gb and u get the dual channel speed increase, only upgrade with one slot of ram and it wont work duel channel)
    video card ( 560 or higher or ati equivalent)
    SSD hard drive 120gb (stick windows and SWTOR on this for supa fast loading)

    there upgrade paths u might take

    edit (game and windows takes up around 5GB ram)

    Your video card is the only limiting factor. It is about equal performance to an 8800 GT, according to Tom's Hardware, which is a 4 year old card about.

    You won't need anymore than 8gb of ram unless you are going to be doing some form of video editing/processing. Also, spend the extra cash and get the GTX 560 ti or grab a HD 6950.
