I'm wanting to try and run SWTOR on medium settings smoothly
I'm not a huge techy, so I'm at loss here.
My current computer specs are:

Processor: AMD Althon(tm) II X2 215 Processor (2 CPUs), ~2.7GHz

Memory: 6144MB RAM

Motherboard: NVIDIA nForce 720a A2 PCI-Express x16

Graphic's Card: Radeon HD 4350 512MB of dedicated graphics memory

I looked at my power supply, it's 250 watts at max outage, so i know i would probably have to upgrade it.

I know i would probably have to get at least a graphic's card, and power supply.
I have a 200$ Budget, what's the best i can do? Would the graphics card work with my Processor/motherboard?
And if i really needed to i could probably squeeze out a few more bucks.

Thanks a lot, for all the help!

You could get a Radeon 6790 for $120 and a decent PSU shouldn't set you back more than the rest of your budget.

Two examples:

Radeon 6790


I've had the non-"green" version of this PSU for quite some time and use it quite a bit at full capacity without a hitch. You don't need this much power but it will allow you to upgrade in the future and it has good internals. Quiet too!
