I was wondering if this computer would be able to handle TOR.

AMD Quad-Core A6-3420M 1.5GHz
4GB DDR3
320GB HDD
AMD Radeon HD 7670M

Thanks!

Well...you have a quad core, which helps. But the processor speed and RAM meets bare minimum. You should be able to run SWTOR just fine, BUT you have to play it on low settings. And probably low resolution (800/600) for better FPS (Frames Per Second).

I am guessing this is a laptop since you processor seems to be a mobile processor. Laptops are all cool and everything if you use them for what they were intended for, which is to be portable. But if you use your laptop like a desktop, quit fooling around and buy a desktop. You get more bang for the buck.

SWTOR has never been laptop friendly, try to keep that in mind.

Thanks for the input! I know laptops aren't gaming computers and was looking into building a desktop but right now a laptop is more practical for my needs.
