It's not worth $100 in your budget. Just sink that into your GPU; unless you want fast boot times and about 5fps increase in games.

This is actually a game problem and not a graphics card processing power problem. If you have a second monitor, pull up something like MSI Afterburner (or just use its OSD). When there is nothing on the screen, your GPU will sit maxed out and your frames will be super smooth. As more things populate the screen though, GPU usage drops. Imperial Fleet has been particularly bad with cards sitting at 20-30% usage while end users are experiencing sub 20 FPS. BW has been working on this and frame rates have definitely improved in IF, but I don't think I have seen either 460 go higher than 50% usage yet in IF.

It will definitely lower your load times. But I would try to find a 256gb for cheap used. Got one for 180 bucks and couldnt be happier. No more HDD noise.

46" TV, wont you need a video card with a lot more VRAM than what is on the 560 or the 69x0? You may have to look at the 7970 which has a good 3GB of VRAM.

Anything above 1GB of VRAM is enough for SWTOR, My setup uses slightly over 1GB of VRAM in SWTOR.

Thought the budget was $800-$1000?

You should go with a i5-2500K and a 560ti

Are you set on that case? or are you open to suggestions?
