Im just getting back to swtor after my old computer died.. RIP my friend.. Anyways just wanted to see what you guys thought about this new build I put together and whether or not it will run swtor on high settings. Here are the specs
CPU: AMD FX-4350 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 54.8 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Toshiba 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: Asus GeForce GT 630 2GB Video Card
Case: Rosewill FBM-01 MicroATX Mini Tower Case
Power Supply: Corsair CX 430W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24F1ST DVD/CD Writer
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit)
Im not set in stone with the price where it is now, I have about 150$ in wiggle room to change things around.
the FX series of CPUs aren't exactly stellar, and that graphics card is weak for gaming, but, well, they ARE cheap... I would suggest focusing on these two issues. Also, are you sure a 430w power supply will be enough?
You could probably save a bit by going down to ddr3-1333 RAM...
Finally I might suggest thinking of getting an SSD.
That will get you sufficient performance, but honestly, if you are going to invest, you might want to go for a bit better. Get at least a geforce 650 (at least)...
See what you can salvage from the old computer. For example, do you REALLY need to buy a new case? your old one might be able to fit your needs with a couple of additional fans installed. Is your old hard drive fried/too old? if yes change it, if not, use it as a storage device.
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3
It has a phase 8+2 which will help you out if you later on decide to overclock your processor, plus it will give a much more stable system. Btw the FX-8320 can easily be overclocked into an 8350.
The advice from Snorkle for an SSD is good, but you can always get it at a later date.
As for the power supply, in my opinion get the corsair 700 (?) W. It will last you quite a while and will allow you to upgrade your gfx at a later date if you want it.
As for swtor, with a beastly cpu and ram you will have no problems playing the game at low/medium regardless of the gt630.
