thanks for the responses, I'm running it on medium'ish settings...do you think a GTX 560 (Fermi) 1GB would be good? It was the best one I seen for my budget (~$200)
There is a good chance you'll be able to get a 560ti for under 200 dollars closer to the swtor release. It's quite a bit better performer on almost all benchmarks than the 560. I would recommend waiting, or spending the extra 30-40 bucks.
The 570 is unlikely to drop into your price range any time soon, or I would recommend that optimally.
