Please do not make multiple topics around the site for the same question. There was 3 such threads I found for the same exact reason. Keep it to 1 topic in 1 forum so you can get the best possible answer to your question.

I'm new to this forum, but I have decided to build my 1st computer and I'm trying to learn as much as possible so I do it right.

That being said, I too am planning on playing Star Wars The Old Republic and already have World of Warcraft, so doing some research as to which components I'll need, I came across this thread in the SWTOR forums. It's a very informative read and I would highly recommend it.

The video card you listed according to the thread would allow you to play SWTOR, but only at medium setting (for a decent Frame Per Second)

Hope this helps

MMOs can be quite demanding games at times, particularly in busy places like quest hubs (towns) where there are lots of players.

IMHO, You can get a wider combination of parts if you build it yourself. Plus more upgrade availability.
