hey broski, i'm in a similar pickle. I'm about to do my first pc build. I've been using my dell xps laptop to run swtor since launch. It's been rough but i've gotten used to it. Now it's to the point where I can barely hold my own, and I play a Scrapper... So i'm ordering monday morning finally. Getting i5-3570k, seasonic 650 or 750 psu, 8gb of ripjaws x or corsair vengeance, a 120gb Samsung ssd, corsair 500 or 600 series case, msi gd-65 or asus p8z77-v board.
I really wanted to get the 660ti when it dropped a few weeks ago, but then I had to wait for my paycheck to come in to cover everything;) Now I don't know which card to get. The 670 is definitely expensive considering i'll mainly be running swtor. The 660 non-ti card is VERY good for the money but I hear it won't hold up so well for overclocking. I figured I would go with an asus, msi, or evga OC 660 and be good to go. But... a lot of people are saying these radeon cards are much better for the money + have a larger memory bus. So now i'm reconsidering. If I can find an asus, msi, or evga 7950 for a really good price monday morning.. i'll prolly get one.
