will AMD Athlon II x 4 645 quad-core processor work for swtor? I am lagging really bad , I know I need to get another Video Card Since I am only using the Onboard VC (NVIDIA GEFORCE 6150SE). I want to know if it's worth getting a Vc for it or not kinda lost on the Whole cpu thing any help would make my day. also some advise on a cheap VC that can hadle the game no lag please.

My brother has that same processor but uses a AMD 6770 video card. He can run it on all high IIRC. They're around $100-130. Make sure you have at least a 450W power supply with one six pin connector as well as a PCI 2.0 motherboard slot and you can use the 6770.

Tomshardware did a performance benchmark for SWTOR and the 5770 (similar performance to the 6770 except older) was basically the minimum you needed to run the game on all high. Check it out here - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/star-wars-gaming-te...

Is this the desktop? http://i.walmart.com/i/rb/0009980294238.pdf

It seems it only has a 220w power supply. You're going to want to upgrade it if you get a new video card.

It also seems like the tower might be too small for a normal higher end video card according to this thread - http://www.sevenforums.com/graphic-cards/170512-new-com.... They recommend a low profile video card. The 6670 should be able to run SWTOR on low-medium settings. They have the low profile version on newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E.... I didn't see any low profile 6770s.

If that card can fit, I would purchase a 6670 and at a 400W+ power supply. Both should be well under your limit.

Edit - Forgot to mention that even though the 6670 is a low profile card. It's still quite large. They have the dimensions listed on newegg. I would get out a tape measure to make sure it will fit inside your case.

An Antec 380W PSU would do it.
