Is it possible to build a computer that can run SWTOR at medium settings 40 fps? If so, please tell me. Windows 7 must be part of the price.

    Will definitely be able to run newer games on max settings.
  3. That psu won't do for a 7870 ghz edtion, you don't pair a 200$ cpu with a ultra crappy mobo biostar h61, nor you choose 1 stick of memory 1333 mhz instead of 2x4gb 1600mhz(i know that crappy mobo doesn't support it) and it needs the windows 7 OS(that's what he said).
  4. Pingy are you kidding me? That motherboard with those specs... yeah... that will crash in an hour and also that PSU.... good luck with that build... +1 for djangoringo

    The PSU is absolutely fine for the GPU. That mobo isn't ultra-crappy, it's perfectly fine. 1 8GB stick leaves room for upgrading to 16GB. There is also nothing wrong with having 1 stick of 8GB.
