Building new gaming comp for Star Wars: TOR. What are you running?

Q: Building new gaming comp for Star Wars: TOR. What are you running?

Hey everyone I am looking at getting a computer for starwars the old republic(needs to release already grr) I am thinking of going through Cyberpowerpc.com my brother and quite a few of my friends have bought computers from them and they seem to be the cheapest for brand new systems. I was hoping I could get some of you to build what you think would be a great computer for gaming, I will only be doing games on it and maybe watching movies I have 1 monitor right now i believe is a 22" viewsonic I would like to get a 24" and have duel monitors. I am looking to spend any where from 1k-1.7k I am looking into getting a SSD with a reg hard drive for storage. Any questions or concerns please post them here and i will get back to you ASAP, PREFER intel i5 unless u think i7 would be better with Over Clocking.

also if you will be playing starwars tor what kind of rig are u running right now and will be running for the game on release day?

so i just seen this and sorry for not doing it prior but here is what i kind of want

What are you going to use the PC for? Starwars: TOR. movies maybe blue ray maybe not not sure yet thats about it.

How much is your budget?

Where are you located? (a.k.a. fill out your profile)
San Joaquin County California near stockton/modesto ca

Are you willing to buy online?
was looking at cyberpowerpc.com I have put together computers myself from newegg.com and a couple other places and from what i have seen cyberpower only charges roughly 30-50dollars to put it together for you.

Are you going to re-use any parts from an earlier build?

Do you need other peripherals like a monitor, keyboard and mouse, among others?
Yes monitor keyboard mouse and headset prefer(throw in speakers ill remove if i want or dont want

Have you already bought any parts?
no i have not bought anything

Do you have an Operating System (OS)?
I have one from my laptop but i dont think i will be using it so throw in maybe windows 7?

Will you need any aftermarket cooling, such as a CPU\GPU cooler or a watercooling setup?
I prefer water cooled CPU/GPU I want it to stay cool as it does get hot here during the summer months, but ontop of that i would like as little noise as possible and no lights or neons I hate bright lights when im trying to sleep lol.

Preferred Solution: Building new gaming comp for Star Wars: TOR. What are you running?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Building new gaming comp for Star Wars: TOR. What are you running?

I am assuming that your present budget excludes the monitor.

Here's what I suggest:

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz - $219.99
ASRock Z68 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 - $189.99
MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III 1G/OC Radeon HD 6950 - $239.99
CORSAIR Professional Series HX850 - $149.99
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) - $69.99
Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB - $54.99
COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II - $79.99

TOTAL - $1004.93

That leaves you with $700 for OS and peripherals.

I am personally using the Microsoft Sidewinder X4 and Logitech MX518 as my keyboard / mouse combo. Really happy with them. However, it's more down to personal preference.

With any cash that's left over you might want to get an SSD/Blu-Ray/etc. Or you might look at getting a second HD 6950 for CF.

I have managed to complete 93% of the game. Right now, I'm working on the timed ground assaults and the gold brick space battles. One problem that I haven't been able to remedy concerns the level Defenders of Peace. I have managed to find all the minikit locations except one. Here's a video of all the locations and how to activate them:

I have followed it to a tea. Everything that is required to get all 10 minikits I have meticulously gone through and completed as per the video. There is one white triangle pointing at an area near the bounty hunter switch. My sister, whom I've done this with, claims that, once the bounty hunter switch challenge has been completed, there is a light on it that is supposed to turn green to signify completion and she says that it hasn't done that. The thing is the video shows that, when you knock out 50 droids, a canister appears at the location of the last droid you knocked out.

So, before I delete the save game data and do it all over again to try and get 100%, do any of you have any suggestions?

Okay, so to begin with, I'm looking for a desktop that will run Star Wars: The Old Republic at normal settings without any serious hiccups.

My price range is around $500-700 dollars (I don't need a monitor, mouse, keyboard, etc.), and I'm not really big on the idea of building my own from scratch.

I was browsing my local Best Buy, and the people there recommended the following desktop:

They said it should be able to run the game at low/medium settings without problems, but I thought I'd get a second, more informed opinion before dropping the cash on it.

They also said that the desktop mentioned above has a number of back slots for installing better memory, ram, and graphics/video cards should I ever desire to do so.

Keep in mind, that I'm not really looking to run any graphics intensive games like Crysis 2 or Battlefield 3 (that's what my consoles are for). Rather, I'm looking for something that will run games that are only available for PC such as SW:TOR, WOW, and some League of Legends.

Any and all advice is much appreciated.


A:Star Wars: TOR Rig

In general it isn't to bad a machine but the integrated graphics card is going to be the issue if anything is. Integrated cards really aren't up to scratch, my son recently bought a PC with an integrated card and it didn't perform overly well in League of Legends!

Some other options:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883229282 - Not the best card in the world, going back to my sons PC above he is running a HD5450 that I gave him and it runs League of Legends and TOR

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883229300 - AMD CPU rather than intel but a bette GPU which would suit a gaming rig more.

I play SWTOR on the rig in my signature, which is an upgraded HP Pavillion (new PSU and Graphics card) and I can run it pretty much maxed out, only have to lower the settings a bit when I go to the fleet (major hub).

I've recently download star wars galaxies. I start it up, everything seems ok...until I finally get in game. The game play was so choppy it made me a little dizzy. So I finally got into the options and turned down all the graphics....still, I was experiencing major lag. Now I've played World of Warcraft for nearly a year with no problems. I think I might know the problem...on the games website it said if you have graphics integrated into your motherboard (I have nVidia GeForce 4mx integrated) that it sometimes borrows regular (sry...dont know all the technical terms) ram to boost video ram...my question is, if thats the problem, can i fix it without buying something?

(and I meet all of the minimum requirements)

thanks in advance

Welcome to TSG!!

Downloaded?.... A legal DL?..
If not, you should have read the rules first.. TSG won't help with pirated software..

Oh and could you list your system specs.. If we can help, that info will help us.

Minimum is bad for games.. It means all the graphics need to be set low or off in some cases..
Yes integrated vid uses system RAM..
Can it be fixed for free?.. Not really, you'll just need more RAM, or another (plug in) video card..

Edit: I have just googled, and it seems some are 10+ day trials..
One said nothing about a time limit..

As I don't really know this game..
I don't mean to pre-judge, but just something TSG likes to know.

On the screen, it gives a list of awards to people, Public enemy, bantha fodder, etc. What do they all mean, and how do you get them. nobody lists these anywhere.

A:Star Wars BF Awards

Well I can't remember all of them off hand, but public enemy is who has killed the most people/droids/wookies etc overall, bantha fodder is who has been killed the most. There's one for dying the least and one for killing the most people on one 'life', but I can't remember what they call those.

Hope that helps.

I want to get Star Wars Galaxy but Im affraid my system won't run it good. I have an athlon 1.4 266 fsb with 521 ddr 2100ram and an nvidia vanta 16 meg. This is the worst part of my system. Well what do you guys think will I be able to run it?

A:Star Wars Galaxy/sys req

You'll be bale to run it, but probably won't enjoy it as much. that game requires a 32 MB card (but for full affect recommends 64 MB), and since you have half that, the video will be sluggish, graphics distorted, and you will lose one of the best elements of the game.

Get a real graphics card to enjoy it properly.

I know this cause when Tomb raider II was out on PC, I only had a 4 MB card and it required an 8 MB card. I had to set screen resolution to it's minimu to even have a semblance of playability, which destroyed the graphic quality of the game.

OCZ also makes good ones as does Kingston. HP makes a Blu-Ray drive (see p. 27) but it is silver and not sure what color your laptop is. You can swap in a generic Blu-Ray reader or reader/burner using the existing caddy and faceplate. Post back if you need help with that.  Unfortunately the 4-cell is the only battery made for your laptop.  All of these upgrades will require removal of the back cover, which is not technically end user authorized. In other words it can jeopardize the warranty. It should be OK as long as no damage is done but you want to feel confident you can do it or find a technician who can.

Looking through the threads I found a few things I tried, NVrefresh and TCP Optimizer. HOwever, still posting a question because of my circumstances. I am running a Pentium 3 1000GHz with 512 Ram. Windows XP Home, NVidia FX 5600SE, DirectX 9. My internet connection is through the school network this causes slow connection when people are using it. When running Star Wars Galaxies the stat window says that ping is about 600-700 the packet loss % is averaging 50% and the bandwidth in on average says 0.5/0.0. Just like some one else running about 20fps. I wanted to know if there is anything I can do to give me the "edge" and almost force a fast connection. When no one is here, like over a school break, it runs great. So, no idea how else to put it, but just wondering if I can make my connection window larger? I will provide as much information as I possibly can if you need it.

So anyways thought I would try to put a bug in someones butt and see if they have mroe luck then I do, since release of Star Wars The Old Republic, I and many many many other users have been experiencing hard system crashes all the way to the point where most of us are forced into a hard reset power button for 5 secondsI.

It seems to happen with a variety of video cards and intel and amd based systems, and still nothing real from the devs about them fixing it, so I thought I would see if anyone on your team could put a bug in their asses about getting this fixed?

We have sent dxdiags, msinfo(32)'s crash reports when they come in and we get the same responses about making sure your system is stable update c++ runtime etc, really no fix or a decent explanation for this to happen. And to boot when they see that you are playing the game, (again which we have to as gamers try even though we know it is futile) they consider the issue is resolved and close the ticket.

I have seen this problem on everything to bare system requirements all the way up to powerhouse systems, with 24 gigs of memory and they still experience the crashing sometimes to desktop and sometimes a black screen of death. I just find it extremely weird that I can play Battlefiled 3 for hours without a single glitch, but when I go to play SWToR I get hard locks like this and it is just getting to the point where I am sick of their nonsense answers that tech support gives.

Hi.  I bought my son the Star Wars edition notebook for his birthday in May 2016.  He has used it infrequently, but has been using it somewhat more lately. As of within the last few days, it won't boot.  Or maybe it's booting, but the screen shows nothing. It doesn't seem to be a battery issue, as it behaves the same whether battery is in place or not.   When I "power up," I get a couple lights and a vague fan sound.  But it never gets anywhere, and nothing ever shows on the screen. None of the keys on the keyboard seem to do anything.  For example, the button to turn on the keyboard backlighting has no effect.  Ctrl-alt-delete does nothing.  Etc.   I've tried a couple of things I found by googling around -- e.g. holding power button for 15 seconds -- but haven't gotten anywhere. Any thoughts?

There are not any mini dmp files in the upload, doesn't appear have been one created.

See if there is a full dump under %SystemRoot%\memory.dmp and upload that.

I think this is a cool game. I wanted to get the big machine but I saw it on ebay and it was $4000! I'm like holy crap there is no way I can buy this. I'm just curious, but is it anywhere on sale on the internet? Because it's not on ebay anymore.

We have had Star Wars Battlefront II for quite a while now, and it always worked on our Windows XP. In fact, we recently installed it on an XP comuter, and it works perfectly, even after we started to have the problem with Vista, so it's not a problem with the CD.

So, when I first put in disk 1, it could install every file except for "data2.cab". I tried manually copying all of the files, but the only one that didn't work was "data2.cab". So, I downloaded the first disk from the internet, and now it installs beautifully. However, when I put in the second disk, it said:

What is the problem? The error is different than the problem with the first disk, because with the first disk, it said something about "Cyclic redundancy check" and the problem was about it not being able to copy a file.

I tried it once, got this error, changed it to Windows XP Compatibility mode, failed.

Ok so I went to go install a game I had previously installed before on my computer (Star Wars battlefront 2), but when I hit install, it goes to the install shield wizard and the message, "Do you want to remove the selected application and all of it's features?" pops up. I clicked yes, as it is the only ay the wizard will let me proceed. It then says that it's configuring the new software installation, but then an error pops up and says, "The following error occurred on the file 'E:/Program Files/LucasArts/Star Wars Battlefront 2/install/pages/preoptions/pre_options_over.png'. The device is not ready (0x15)." Then I have to abort, and the installation ends.

I looked it up in Add or Remove programs, but it is still there, and I have my suspicions that it is trying to uninstall it from the E:/ drive, but it does not exist, as we have a merged drive that is labeled as C:/ that we merged some time ago to make installing and space reqs easier to keep track of.

I have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system. If you can help, or have instructions on how to proceed manually, It'd be much appreciated....thanks

A:BSOD while trying to download star wars

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hold your horses - this might be long.

I wanted to play star wars - phantom menace, so i put in the disc as usual, and boom, i cant get it to install because... a file is missing i think. Wheen I wanna install it, it says: "Setup requires _SETUP.DLL and _ISRES.DLL (located in _SETUP.LIB) in order to operate properly. Please ensure these files are located with SETUP.EXE." - LIKE THAT! Since I can't find _ISRES.DLL even though I found the other files, I concluded that THAT was the file missing, so I downloaded it from a website. But I couldn't get _ISRES.DLL into the CD folder!! When I try to write it to the CD, it says: "The disc in the drive is not a writable CD or it is full. Please insert a blank, writable CD into drive D:\, or insert a disc with enough free space to hold all the files you have selected for writing to CD." - LIKE THAT! ARHG! So I tried moving all the files in the CD OUT into another folder, so I could then put in the _ISRES.DLL, but I can move every file but the Install file, where I'm supposed to put the _ISRES.DLL. If I don't do that, I cant do nuts about installing. Anyone got any tricks up their sleeves to help me on this?

Appreciated if you answer ASAP.

A:Star Wars - The Phantom Menace

well all the files should be on the disk...what operating system are you trying to install it onto? i assume it is a retail copy of the game? and that will mean u cant write to the disk...but the error messages you are gettin state what your r sayin is right...i imagine the game is for the windows 98 platform as it was made in early 99? youl be lucky to get it to install into xp as it is a dos based game, and youl not get it to run in vista
