So while you could upgrade if you feel like your rig is not strong enough, i guess it would still be a kind of gamble if you end up with a rig that really runs the game smoothly
Indeed I agree. Same issue here, and it is not my cpu that is bottlenecking it. I have an i7 860 and it is not running near full load in the game.

That's weird because I have a Radeon 6970 and I head my fan kick on all the time because it is being used all the time, I am getting constant fps of like 80 though which makes sense.

it makes sense. That is the problem here. I run Bf3 on high/ultra and never dipps below 60. But on this game I range from 110-25 depending on situation and my gpu is only under say 50% load.

What card do you have?

This game isn't using my processor either (in addition to not using the card).. its topping out at 80% usage.

When I avg 60-75 in a 25 man raid in WoW on high settings and the same in AV 40 vs 40, yet in this game in a small BG "warzone" with everything on Low i cant get 20 fps??? ***, and yes ive tried the suggestions and they helped by like 5 fps.

I have a gtx 580 platinum edition so it should really be enough for this game. But as I said before, I am not alone with this problem.

Yeah thats the prob with the game atm, if i compare the gpu activity with other games (skyrim 90%, witcher 2 95%~) swtor only uses it 20% for the most part, in my spaceship i get 80% and 100fps. but it seems to affect nvidia cards too, so it doesnt seem to be an ati only problem. it just affects some rigs, others not
