Minimal gaming, at most want SWTOR to run smooth. Open to all opinions as I am new at this and been a while since I researched. Here are the ones I am looking at.

Since it can max out Bad Company 2 (not BF3) I'm pretty sure it would play SWTOR just fine. Its also at a GREAT Price right now, most affordable it has ever been.
