Help! new graphics card needed for swtor

Hello all, I was just recently let into the swtor beta and while playing I had considerably low FPS constantly, even when i played on minimum settings. (the lowest possible)
I wanted some help in choosing a new graphics card seeing that I am not that great with computers and haven't the slightest clue as to which card would be suitable to play the game with decent settings.
What I am looking for is just a card that isn't too pricey and will manage to play the game smoothly, I am not looking for any hardcore graphics card, just an average one that will suffice.
My computer specs are: emachines -Intel Pentium 4 Processor 641 (3.20 GHz l 800 MHz FSB l 2MB L2 Cache)
-NVidia GeForce 9400 GT
-2GB RAM

Not sure if I got all the info you guys need or not so let me know if I am missing anything. Thanks in advance for any help.

  1. Your pentium is a problem as well and the best card I would recommend for it is HD4670 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150579 still a good upgrade from the 9400GT

  2. Thank you for the quick response! I hope you don't mind me asking you a few more questions, if it isn't too much of a hassle. Would you recommend that I upgrade my processor as well, assuming it wouldn't create a bigger problem?
    Sorry, my lack of knowledge about computers is a nuisance.
  3. Being an emachine It is hard to find out what it actually supports in CPU's. I personally would leave it as is and start thinking about a full system upgrade.
