My old computer from 2005 was unable to run this game (Not surprised), I'm hoping to make an upgrade to a new one just for this game. I'm fine with playing on Low for everything, and only getting 30 or so FPS. My price range would be around $200-600ish dollars if possible (cheaper the better). Anybody who is more technologically intelligent have some recommendations of what to get?

Hey man check this one out.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883113175

AMD Phenom x6 which are great CPUs for the price. Also comes with 6 GB of DDR3 memory, 1.5 TB Hard disk and ATI Radeon 4250. The graphics card is kinda lame but later you could always pick up another one. Price $599.99.

If your willing to spend a tad bit more you could go with this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883227369

Which has a higher end AMD Phenom x6, 8 GB of DDR 3 memory, 1TB hard disk and a ATI Radeon 6670 with a 1 GB of memory. This machine would run SWTOR pretty damn well. Price is $699.99.

Sure an i5 CPU (200$), 8gb or more ram (100$), 460 GTX or better (150$) a motherboard (100$) and you will be fine for another 5 years. The hard drive, dvd rom, the case and psu you can get from your old PC. Or you could get the new PC from the store for a double price...

actually he might need a new PSU, doubt it has connections to power PCI-E if its over 5 years old.
