Your video card seems to be an onboard video card. If this was something like a 2nd gen I3/5/7 you'd be fine. However your onboard video is probably at the low levels for displaying the game correctly.

Do you happen to have another video card on your machine? Also what operating system are you running?

Processor is a good speed (and its looks like a Sandy Bridge one).
Ram- looks great. I believe SWTOR is large address aware enabled so it'll use ~4gb of ram for performance.
Video card- I run a GTX 570 (EVGA) and it runs everything on high settings just fine.

Honestly, your setup looks ok. 4gb is enough to run the game. Video card seems to be ok.
Have you tried some of the fixes where you Set the video preset in preferences to high, hit apply then to low and hit apply? I was telling people on my server to do this and it did fix a lot of fps and video issues.

Your pagefile size looks ok. If you have the hard drive space, I would make it min 10000 to 12000 max. Just looking at what I do with my system and I have no issues.

Are you running the most current video drivers?

Hi,
I got early access (emailed) through on the 16th and started it all up all well and good, for some reason the graphics defaulted to lowest possible, which was odd, so i raised them all to max, everything.

Now, ever since that moment, my GPU has started to act up, badly, not just noticable in SWTOR but in other games, BF3 - SWTOR - Trine2 - All other games i have, here is a description of whats happening:

: 10 - 20 Minutes into Gameplay the game starts to lagg extremely bad, i recorded the FPS drop and found it to be a steady 60-70 FPS drop to 5-10 FPS, (unplayable) for a recorded 10-20 seconds.

- This would recur about 3 times in an hour

I have a ATI HD 5770 and its overclocked to GPU Clock: 900 MHZ - Memory Clock - 1300MHZ, i have tried turning the overclock off, no difference.

The worrying thing is, its getting worse, the spikes are occuring more often, the spike times are increasing/

The moment i turned SWTOR to full settings, it spiked for a good minute, and then all of the above started happening in sequence

(note i reinstalled drivers / reinstalled SWTOR)

Any help or resolve would be greatful

- System Spec

Q6600 Quad Core - Overclocked to 3.2GHZ
8GB DDR3 1333MHZ Vengence Ram
ASUS P8P67 Motherboard PRO
Hard Drive: 1TB Western Digital
OS: Windows 7 64-Bit
THis sounds fun Ok i have a couple questions for you
1: what size power supply do u have?
2: Have you been monitoring the temps of your system?
(If not http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html Free tool)
3: What is your Video Card peaking at?
(1hr into game play)
4:If your OC is still off put it back to what is was OCed at and tell me what it peaked at?
(1hr into game play)

Hey guyz ' got a quick question and need a response in a hurry, lemme explain:

Been a fan of star wars since i'm a lil girl like most of us, was playing it sincefirst day of Early game access and as my rig is way too old, my father just told me he'd buy me a new one so i can play the game with maxx graphics on my hd tv... Thing is, he just bought it without asking me and i have no idea if that would be possible, or even if the laptop will be able to run the game ! Here are some specs :

i7-2670QM 2.2 Ghz
Windows 7 64bits
Memory 6GB DDR3
Video card AMD Radeon HD 6490M 1GB DDR5

PLEASE, if this wont run the game on high definition, can you tell me so i can cancel the order or at least ask for a refund before the delivery, my father doesnt have much money but star wars is something we build our relationship on and i don't wanna disappoint him....

Thanx in advance guyz...

I saw that the 2GB version of the videocard would cost 200 bucks more, would that help if the 1GB is not good enough ?
