Will I be able to play SWTOR with my machine?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm wanting to play SWTOR but I'm not sure my computer will run it. I have an HP Pavilion a6720y with an AMD Phenom 9550 Quad Core 2.20 GHz processor, 6 GB memory, 64 bit os, 300 watt psu and an Nvidia Geforce 9100 which is apparently not good enough to run the game.
I also have another comp that has an ATI Radeon HD 3200 but appears its also not good enough to play the game.
My comp only has one 1 PCI Express x16 slot for a graphics card, so my question is what graphics card do I need to buy to be able to play swtor, I need a card that will work without having to change my psu or motherboard cause im pretty damn broke right now. g.gif

I'll make it short and sweet.

Nope.

Not even close.

A 300 watt PSU is really limiting you and your ability to buy a GPU that could run SWTOR at resonable quality settings. Most newer cards require at least 400 watts and the fact you have OEM PSU doesn't help either since they're not giving a constant 300 wattage.

Maybe a 550ti or something that is low wattage.

Does the PSU have a 6pin pci-e power connector already?
