It is a Gateway FX6860-UR21P
I don't want people saying how they hate Gateway or how I should build a computer. I just want a pre built or a built to order computer that will run this game and other games on a high setting, or at least console graphics. If you know of a better computer for under $1,300 that I will get a better bang for my buck please post a link to it with a name in case the link doesn't work. Thanks.

Might be tough, Hard drive is low rpm and card is not best, if want to stick with Radeon, Radeon HD 7870 will be better by alot from 7770 HD.
Tracer Legacy, The Red Eclipse.
Not reading colored text, it hurts my eyes. Sorry (unless it's a dev post)

I don't care what is in it really as long as it will play with good graphics and can play other games with console graphics or better. The one thing is I will not get a Mac cause I like windows more. No offence to any Mac people, I have an iPod touch and Nano, I just grew up with windows.

Actually since this game (like most MMORPGs) is very CPU-bound and with that memory you can easily use the SWTOR unleashed, I think you can play the game on max, for a bit quicker loading you can always later go for an extra small SSD harddrive

Any recommendations of a better computer that is $1200 or less?

Yeah this computer would run it max, Well as max as it can go right now. Swtor is only dx9 meaning that NO graphics company supports it right now (oopps)

The good news, the hero engine hardly knows what a GPU is so most of the rendering is done on the cpu.

Bad news is that you are paying for that nice gpu and and are going to need to turn off all the nice features on it so the game doens`t stutter like a mother.

Hopefully they do the bump up to DX11 so maybe one day we can see a driver update with swtor notes in it

Will overkill the game but its a little low on memory

http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Ship_..._AMD_FX_6-Core

Will run the game on high but has 4x the memory of the other one

good company too it's where i got my PC and i couldnt be any happier


http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Ship_..._AMD_FX_8-Core

^this one is the same as the top one but with added memory... im pretty sure tax will put both just over 1300 tho

Edit: As long as you dont live in England or overseas all pc's i linked come in just under 1300
