Ive gotten to the point if I see "account cancelled" in the subject or the body I wont help. Also you cant be bothered to read the FAQ and post your request properly again ignored for the most part. I dont get why people think its ok to come in here and be hostile to everyone, not follow the rules for asking in the first place and then say they have already cancelled.

As somebody replied before already, I too think it is a CPU issue. I had 5-10 fps in warzones and it was unplayable. Now I changed CPU and motherboard and i get 20-30 fps in warzones on everything low, shadows off, 1024x768, and it is playable, without a dedicated graphics card. Just using the integrated Intel HD 2000. My system now has Intel Pentium G860 @3GHz, 4GB RAM.
I think currently probably no GPU will help you, until they fix this cpu issue. But I understand that buying a new cpu is not something people would like to do, just because of one game. I wanted to upgrade my system anyway, and here I just want to let know the improvement I noticed. (for info, I previously had Intel Core2 Duo E4300 @1.8GHz).

Lol, like you actually help more than you troll.
I have as much authority as the Pope. I just dont have as many people who believe it.

I think your just worried about your server pop's land sliding. No one is being hostile. Well except maybe you.

I myself am using a 9800 GT with an AMD X2 255 3.10 Ghz Processor with Win 7 x 64
and 4 gigs RAM and I have no issues with framerates. I run warzones just fine and there
is no drop in framerate for me while doing them.
Age of Conan had an issue similar with Dual Core CPU's so we'd set the affinity to use just one core. Maybe if you set your affinity to use 2 cores instead of 4 it may help.

I wish they would slide a little more. Last night I had almost an hour wait to get in.

I find this funny. I know I have a terrible computer. I run about a 5 fps average on my computer but I get through it and people complain when they run 20 fps in quests and 10 in warzones. I run about 3 in warzones. I get over it I expect this game to not run good on my junk laptop
We are not running away... just making a tactical advance in the other direction

Well thanks for the suggestions/support!!

Im trying to figure out what to do here. Im in the middle of reinstalling the game. My computer runs/boots great. I can have iTunes, WoW fullscreen, and google Chrome with 40-60+ tabs open and it screams. Its a custom built PC, so it doesnt have any OEM bloatware to slow it down, and I already have the msconfig startup stripped down.

I forgot to mention that I added an extra fan that takes up 2 pci bays and sits right next to the GPU. Im monitoring the temperature, and its 30C idle, 50C full load. That's pretty good.

Im contemplating getting a new CPU, but normally when a CPU has issues, its effects are noticed in many other ways, besides a very specific "run like crap when SWTOR runs" :P . Its an AM2/AM2+, so Its hard to find a local place to get a replacement since my MoBo wont take a socket AM3 processor (such as the Phenom II).

Reinstalling Windows is probably not going to happen. I just have way too much software and data to reload (the kind that doesnt just run perfectly out-of-the-box if you just run them out of a copied folder; the registries are very particular).

I really shouldn't have to be spending this much time and money to try to figure out tweaks and work-arounds to get the game barely playable,...

Im going to try reinstalling this off the CD's, but if that doesnt work, I'll try downloading the full install online. Im wondering if perhaps there is an installation issue with the CD installer creating corrupted files, possibly due to having to change CD's? (wild shot)

I have read and am starting to believe that AMD is partially a problem. Not sure but I have many issues with this game fps wise, and I have two comps with similar problems both AMD's.

Renagadepimp where is that post at saying they are addressing the issues in warzones/imp fleet?
