Considering Going Back to WoW

I had high hopes for SWTOR, and to be honest, I like the game a lot. But it's difficult to enjoy the game when I only get small windows of play time here and there. Oh yeah, the lag. It lags all the time. Yesterday I was getting 5-10 fps nonstop. It was unplayable. After spending my entire day tweaking my computer here and there, I stumbled across a fix. Apparently turning graphics options on and off in a certain mysterious order fixed the lag, at least somewhat.

But it still lags. I'm not enjoying the 20 fps I get when I'm lucky, less in enclosed spaces. And I know I'm not the only one with these problems.

For a good chunk of yesterday, the game wouldn't even let me in. It went from the launcher to a loading screen, then a black screen, then back to my desktop. Finally I decided to system restore, which fixed it.

I get an easy 60-70 fps on WoW with medium settings, so why is it SWTOR is almost unplayable?

Do I even need to explain the ridiculous queue times?

Maybe this is considered smooth for an MMO launch of this caliber. Maybe I should just relax and wait for them to patch the problems. But my question is this: why am I bending over backwards just to play this game when I can play WoW no problem? What reason do I have to play this when WoW is begging me to come back? Shouldn't I just play WoW in the meantime, which doesn't give me migraines, and come back to this when all the glaring problems are solved?
