Hey there everyone. I am on an extreme budget right now because of work and having to buy some new "work equipment" and I ended up spending thousands. Anyways SWTOR is upon us and my gaming computer died. The system requirements can be seen here:

But, I want to be able to run the game on Med- High with 30+ fps and if I have to I will turn shadows off.

So here is what I came up with that fits in my budget. Let me know what you think and any advice or pointers is welcome!

-Intel I3 2100 3.1ghz Dual CPU Sandy Bridge
-Nvidia GTX 260 896mb 448bit
-Corsair Builder series 600w PSU
-4gb Gskil DDR3 1600 ram
-Seagate Barracuda 1tb HD
-MSI H61M-P23 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

I still haven't picked out a case or DVD drive either.
