Intel core i7 3930K (6 cores)
32 GB ram
Double GTX 580 cards in SLI
SSD harddrive
And a PSU powerful enough to make use of the stuff.

The max fps i get in game is 110 but it can drop down below 20 in cities.
In most fights i don't even have 40 FPS.
Running the newest drivers for the GFX, motherboard, hard drive controller etc.

1920x1080 and everything on max.
Doesn't matter if i play on 1280 x 1024 with everything on low, i still get fpsdrops.

Reinstalled the drivers, tried older versions of the gfx drivers.
Turned off SLI, put the game in fullscreen and windowed.
Doesn't really change stuff.


How can i make the game playable?

Doesn't say much for this game if you can't play with that stuff!

I was thinking about getting a radeon 6950 but if your setup doesn't run this game right then something is wrong with this game, and I'd hate to get a better card and it not run right either.

But what's weird, I got a Phenom II X4 3.2, 8 gigs ram, and a Nvidia GT 430 right now, I get 60 fps at fleet, regardless of population, around 45 to 50 on planets like tatooine or alderaan, and 30 in warzones.

I'd stick with your NVIDIA card right now.

I have the same setup, but with a AMD 6790 and between crappy AMD drivers and crappy Bioware engine, I've got graphics bugs and issues up the wazoo. I've tried it out on several machines with AMD cards they all have issues. I know other people with NVIDIA cards that have no issues...

This is very strange.

My computer is certainly not meant for gaming by any means and it runs pretty smooth.

What areas specifically are you experiencing the low FPS rate? Also, what's your internet connection lookin' like?

I run everything with the lowest settings, including tree details. Shadows turned off etc. I noticed if you slightly reduce the resolution it greatly helps the FPS.
