  1. This should answer your questions. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/star-wars-gaming-tests-review,3087-4.html

    You need a video card upgrade. Your CPU and RAM is perfectly fine.
  2. Thank you very much! would it be easy to swap out the old GPU?
  3. It depends on what you currently have. Is it a brand name PC or a home brew? As long as you have a PCI-E x16 slot, which I assume you have, and enough space for a new card along with an adequate power supply it really isn't to bad. It can just be more of a pain in the butt to manage cables in a smaller brand name case. If you have to replace the power supply I'd suggest a modular power supply if you want to make it easy.
  4. My PC is a latop top actually if that makes any difference.
  5. It makes all the difference. You can't upgrade laptop graphics card, you are stuck with what you have. Not sure how it will run that game even on low settings. My assumption is your laptop has a lower resolution so it might do a little better. However, it's hard to tell. I believe there is a compatibility test out there somewhere for the game. Not sure if that was part of the beta or not.
  6. Ohh i see, so there's no way for me to open up my laptop and swap out the
    GPU?
  7. Nope
  8. ohh okays, well thanks for the info. I'll probably end up building a new desktop.
  9. mobile gaming is very expensive. I know only a few people who do it and they usually buy a ridiculously over powered laptop for $2,$3,$4 grand just so it is not outdated in a year. You can build a decent gaming PC for $1000ish (PC only).
  10. thank you thank you. I'll most likely build a desktop then
  11. ^It's more fun that way.
