Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and any help would be much appreciated thanks!
I have very limited knowledge concerning computer specs, since the last time I upgraded was in 2001! However I have decided to go back to my MMO routes and would like to purchase the new Bioware Star Wars: The Old Republic.
My computer is sadly extremely old however and would like to know whether my current PC, with my intended upgrades, would suffice in playing the game on high'ish settings with a very stable frame rate?
My current specs are as followed: Dell Vostro 200
Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 2.3 GHz processor
2048 MB(2 GB) of DDR2 PC2-5300(DDR2-667) RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 8300GS 512 MB integrated graphics
320 GB hard drive
I understand I have an incredibly poor GPU and small pool of RAM, so my intended upgrades are:
Adding an additional 2GB of DDR2 RAM (in total 4GB).
Adding MSI ATI Radeon HD 6850 Cyclone Power Edition 1024MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card.http://www.overclockers.co.uk/search_results.php?sortby=&groupid=701&search=6850
So would my current PC, with the additional upgrades outlined, play the new Star Wars MMO near high settings and with a stable frame rate? And if not what settings would I (if at all) be able to play the game?
Any information/help would be greatly appreciated thanks! All I require is a cheap'ish upgrade that will allow me to play this game
