Agreed but not the way you see in this game intel chips in the same pricing on stock frequencies outperform even the new amd chips with heavy oc in no other game i have any problems with my current system, i mean comon crysis 3 runs on max perfectly over 30fps(except first level) and any other cpu intensive game for that matter except this one

AMD Phenom first Gen (Agena) 9550 - It's very bad for swtor, dont ever think about hetting this one for tor. Never seen green or yellow numbers in-game. A few times in cinematics, or login screen.

well for the AMD Phenom series would have to be X3 to X4 for you to be able to see some green numbers in-game i know cause i have my laptop the AMD Phenom II X4 N930 and i get yellow to green

here for anyone that would like to own a ultimate budget PC to play game other then TOR
CPU: Quad-Core A8-3870K Black Edition APU
GPU: Asus AMD Radeon HD 7750
Case: COOLER MASTER Elite 431 Plus RC-431P-KWN2 Black Steel Body
HDD: Seagate Momentus XT 500GB
Motherboard: ASRock A75 PRO4
Memory: Kingston HyperX Black 8GB (2 x 4GB) 1600Mhz
PSU: COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power 600W

everything in total would come up to around 650$ you can get TOR at 70 fps on the max settings with this setup for other games like Crysis 3 and yes i have seen the fps for that CPU and GPU together you would get max settings 45+ fps and the Seagate Mementus XT if no one really knows it its a Hybrid drive meaning it would as a HDD and SSD so example a SSD would give on a estimate to the average 7200 RPM drives a 15% boost but the Hybrid drive would give a 10% boost which is still good

also like to let people know i am a Intel and Nvidia guy but for this setup for people on a budget and if i had the extra money now to build another system i would go for this just cause i would be saving a lot of money and for the people that might be curious on my rig right now it is a Core i5 2500k Asus GTS 450 DirectCU Top 8GB DDR3 Kingston HyperX Blu i get on average on this game 60+ fps on max settings but i paid a little less then that system cause i got my parts on special a few years back :P so like i was saying before if anyone only has like 700$ to spend on a new desktop this would be your system

for people that only has 700$ and wants to get a laptop/notebook i would suggest the lenovo G780 Metal
comes with the Intel Core i5 3230M at 2.6Ghz the GPU is a GT 635 2GB with 6GB DDR3 memory its not a bad system i have tested that CPU and GPU in a notebook before with this game and you get about 40+ fps on high settings no AA and screen res would be 1360x768 hope people enjoys my advice and like i said this is for people on a budget its not super high end like other people would post like a Core i7 or a AMD FX-8350 Vishera so enjoy research the price in your country cause this pricing if for in america/canada and have a good day

well i am a intel guy but now with the AMD APU's i dont know anymore cause i have seen the A6's and A8's play this game pretty well with no lag and those one's mainly seen on laptops the A8's i have seen on 1 desktop but of course had to get a separate GPU cause the desktop graphics on the APU series isnt that strong for games (which i am surprised the laptop versions are stronger) but ya

i know your post is old but if it was me i would go for the HD 7750 just cause the HD 7770 is like a 2-4 fps boost only which you dont really tell

Glad there's already a thread for this where I can ask this question.

Alot of people are always trying to find ways to tweak settings to make the game run better/smoother, but I want to know what TOR looks like at it's maximum potential in terms of graphics/visuals.

Right now I'm using Nvidia Inspector to push the graphics beyond what the normal game settings are capable of but I also don't really know what I'm doing.

I recently bought...

Sabertooth Z77 Motherboard
Geforce GTX 680 (Twin Razor)
Intel Core i7-3770k LGA 1155 Processor
G-Skill Ripjaws X 16GB

...and have my Nvidia Inspector settings set up like this...

I don't know if this is "the best" I can make it or if I have things conflicting with other things in the these settings or what I can change to make it look better so I thought I'd ask here.

Also is there a(ny) ENB that works for TOR?

The thing(s) that look the worst in the game for me right now are clothing/armor textures but I know those are resolution based files that I can't do anything about, ie those are always going to look bad no matter what I tweak (I think)

Any thoughts/opinions on playing SW:TOR on a single GTX 680 2gb vs. two GTX 660 Ti in SLI?

CPU will be i7-3770 3.5 Ghz (OC'd to 4.2)
16 gb DDR3

Just because I've seen a lot of questions in regards to this, I'll bring it to the fore.
