SWTOR video card upgrade help

Last response: in Graphics & Displays

Recently got SWTOR as a gift and hate to sound like a broken record, but do need some help. Have a pretty bad graphics card that I need help upgrading to be able to play (just hoping for some medium settings performance).

I have an ATI Radeon HD 3450 256mb card that I need to upgrade. It is a single slot width card and unfortunately because of the design of my motherboard and how close my processor is to the video card I can't fit a dual slot width card. Does anyone have any suggestions on a good card that could run it on medium settings smoothly that I could upgrade to?

Based on what I have I could fit up to a 8" L x any size W x 1" H card. The big limiting size is the height or thickness.

Suppose another idea would be to get an ATX motherboard replacement then a better video card. Thanks!!!

Radeon 5770/6770 should do the job they come in dual and single slot so make sure you get the right one and your power supply can handle it.

What resolution do you play at ? and what's your PSU ?
As simon mentioned,a 5770/6770 can handle the game fin on resolutions like 1600x1200

I've been playing on the next to lowest setting (1280 x 768) i believe, but would like to bump it up a bit with a new card
