Graphics Issues

I'm curious if anybody else is having this problem. I am running an Asus G73jh gaming laptop. It has been running SWTOR just fine for the past 4 months or so, but recently (mainly after the update/patch.) my Graphics card has been having issues with the game. I know it is only SWTOR because none of my other games (i.e. StarCraft 2, Sins of a Solar Empire, Minecraft, or Forsaken World) are having graphical issues. I have updated the graphics card driver in case it was that, but the problems persist. Another thing to note, it ONLY happens with i play my Sith Assassin, i can play my Sentinel all day and it won't bug out at all.

The game is freezing, I'm having artifacts and sometimes the game just doesn't display correctly. Below are the hardware/software specs for my laptop. Please tell me what i can do to fix this.

Intel® Core™ i7 Processor 620M/820QM/720QM : 2.66 GHz - 1.6 GHz, with Turbo Boost up to 3.33/3.06/2.8 GHz;

Have you run the repair option after login, lower left on launcher looks like a cog.
