You should ensure you have at least the above PC specs in order to run SWTOR smoothly. It can run on systems which aren’t as powerful, but you won’t be able to play nearly as well, especially in groups and large PvP battles. It can also help to have gaming equipment that is optimized for SWTOR. For example, as it is an MMO game, you will need to communicate with other players. A gaming headset with a microphone is perfect for this. Also, you may want to consider an MMO mouse as the extra buttons can make the gameplay a lot easier.

Note that these specs are still subject to change!
