Well, Here's what I'm running with,

 

An Asus G74sx a-1 gaming laptop

 

a 17.3" screen with 1920 X 1080 resolution,

i7 2630 QM @ 2.9GHz

a 12gb DDR3 @ 1600MHz

an Nvidia GTX 560M with 3gb of vram

1.5 TB of HDD

Thermal-Compound Cooling system plus rear exhaust vents keeping the computer cool

 

TL;DR: Sweet laptop under 2,000 $ with great gaming capability and great cooling system, can run witcher on ultra with uber sampling off and run SWTOR on highest at around 80 fps. (AA on)

Well, I think you should have saved your money and bought something more productive since your computer was one year old! But I hope that your computer works very well and you enjoy this game a lot while using it.

That's a very sweet build, I bet you will have a blast trying it out on SWTOR and other games :D I'm stuck with my old 4yo PC hah.

hey we all have "impulse buys" but if you feel you really needed it that's fine, personally whenever i feel impulse buys coming on I just wait 7 days and if after 7 days I decide I still want it then I buy it, but a new computer is always cool, so fresh and running smooth, let us know what it's like play SWTOR on it :)
