Based on the benchmarks from Toms Hardware, it seems as if neither card would play max on ultra while sustaining 60fps. So regardless of which card, both would be a good choice. Based on the fact, of the benchmarks given, that you'd have to lower AA and TrSSAA in order to sustain 60fps.

I just went to the highest performance. The only card that would get +60 fps is the 590/7970

You dont actually read the posts do you? Well the 560ti 448 and 2x4gb will be a good choice with that 2500k. You will be able to max out any games you play at 1080p. And it doesnt matter if you play on your 46inch tv, a 24inch monitor with 1080p has the same res as your tv. But remember a lot of TVs dont look too good when hooked up to a PC. But have fun with the build and game. Post some pictures if you buy it. thumb.gif

He read it perfectly clear. Although we have disagreements, both of the builds are definitely viable for good SWTOR gaming

Lot of options. I bought a modular PSU for my first build and it sure made things easier and cleaner. SWTOR isn't THAT intensive, I mean.. It really needs some optimization from either Bioware or Nvidia/AMD graphical drivers because GPU usuage - regardless of what GPU/CPU is usually way way too low when in a crowded place. If you need a mouse, consider the Abyssus . Very comfortable, but SWTOR is a game side buttons may be helpful to you so DeathAdder for $50, Or just a cheapo. whatever floats your boat.

You have room to play around with, I'm not saying a 6950 2GB is necessary for SWTOR, but modern games are sucking up more and more vram. It would fit nicely in either build.

This Intel build. Use the extra money to upgrade your GPU and upgrade your PSU accordingly. I use the Naga for SWTOR very nice for MMO's biggrin.gif .

I want to thank everyone for their assistance and I have another question to ask. Would adding a SSD improve performance considerably due to the large amount of textures and voice in SWTOR or do SSD's really help more with fast pace FPS games like BF3 making little to no difference in a game like SWTOR?

what i know about SSD's is that it decreases load times in all aspects.
