plays SWTOR only just manageable now

Windows 7 64bit
460w PS
AMD Athalon II X2 215 2.8ghz dual core
Pegatron Narra5 motherboard
4gb DDR2 ram
Nvidia Geforce 240GT 1gb

So looking to upgrade and keeping it under 200 for a couple of months til i can build a new PC (and give this one to my wife) so any help is appreciated, i was looking at a new graphics card since im capped on RAM and if i did get one i could put this 240gt in my wifes comp. thanks.

ram is fine, processor not sure, but get the video card you can for 200, 560ti? 448 preferred?

Looking at the specs there, let's see: Ram is fine... processor is... shaky but passable.... video card is not sufficient.

SWTOR isn't really CPU intensive, but does well with a mid ranged graphics card. Toss a 6850 in that system, and it'd run smooth enough. Anything better than that, is going to end up bottlenecked by your CPU anyway.
