I imagine you'll be able to run the game at high setting without issue.

The hardware will play the game fine, but with only a 60 GB hard drive, you will be hurting for space soon. Hopefully you plan on installing an additional drive for storage.

You purchased a really really bad video card with that deal and got an outdated first series i7 cpu. The video card you purchased will be no greater than standard on board graphics. I don't think you'll be particularly happy with your performance in game.

Looks good other then the Hard Drive. You have only a 60 gig drive selected, and SWTOR alone takes 20, not even taking into account the operating system.

Otherwise it should play everything at highest settings.

Ummmm, no.

Not sure what you are talking about in regards to the graphics card. Have the exact same one and I can run everything at high settings, get 100+ fps.

Also works wonders on other games (MW, BF, Batman Ark, etc...).

Have never had a problem with it not running anything at high settings, completely satisfied with it.

This! My windows 7 install is 30gb. The client install for SWTOR is 18.5GB. Not a whole lot of space for anything else.

Sorry but that is just not true. He got a 520. That is standard on board graphcis. To run BF3 at 100+ FPS like you claim you'd need at minimum a 460 gtx (and I don't even think you could be running 100+ at medium with a 1080p setting like the OP got based on his monitor), to run it on anything other than medium at 100+ FPS you go into the category of SLI 560ti's or a 570 or a 580.

As others have said his operating system is going to take at least 28 gigs and that's if he knows how to prioritize his system dumps otherwise that will keep growing to be 60 gigs plus. The game itself is another 20+ gigs. Add in any form of media, random programs, browsers, etc. and the HD will be full within an hour of use.

According to the specs listed above he got

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB 16X PCIe Video Card

That should certainly be sufficient for anything TOR could throw at it. Mind you the HD still sucks, and will soon render the machine unusable.
