What are the minimum specs, plain and simple? I am getting tremendously bad lag and it's killing the game for me. My spec's are as followed:

AMD Phenom 9550 Quad-Core Processor 2.20GHZ
Ram 6.0 GB
System Type - 64 Bit Operating System

Is this ok to run SWTOR or am I pretty much up a creek without a paddle? I know WoW and SWTOR are from differnt era's but I never even thought twice about latency for FPS with WoW and it seems like WoW would be harder to run. Thanks guys for any information that helps.

You didn't post what video card you have, that is the most important part.

That's similar to what I have and I'm only getting an average of 25 FPS with every single setting in the game, and in my graphics control panel, either turned off or to 'low'.

I don't know what else to tell you.

Yea your doing similiar to mine, it's horrible isn't it. It will jump from as low as 5 to as high as 23-24. Settings are low/off in the graphics tab. I bought the game online, just wondering if my specs are more then what the minimum is for the game to run smoothly. If the problem is on my end, or their end..

Ah ok. If that's what it takes I guess I will have to invest in a new card. I was thinking this was more of a Bioware issue with everyone and there brother having problems with the FPS.

This is not true. I have dual cards in SLI and still crappy performance. Lots of people posting problems to include people with decent systems.
