NO TRYING TO PERSUADE ME NOT TO BUY IT! I have made up my mind, I'm (hopefully) getting it in a couple of months. So please no criticism.
I asked this question on Yahoo! a few days ago, but I'm going to ask it here, where people probably know a lot about this stuff.
I customised an Alienware Area-51 ALX Desktop computer, and am hopefully buying it soon, but I wondered how well it would play SW:TOR. Whether it would be able to play it at 100+ fps or whether it would break the game if I played it at too low specs. The Alienware's tech specs are:
Intel® Core™ i7 Processor 960(3.20GHz,4.8GT/s,8MB)
Dual 4GB GDDR5 AMD® Radeon™ HD6990 CrossFireX™
2TB Dual Hard Drive Raid 0 "Stripe" (2x1TB - 7200rpm)
6GB 1600MHz (3x2GB) Tri Channel Memory
Alienware OptX™ AW2310 23” 120Hz 3D Capable Full HD Widescreen Monitor - UK
Another addition to the question, how well would the Alienware actually perform out-of-SW:TOR? Would it be able to run like 3 games at once without crashing do you think? I mean, I have an eMachines non-gaming laptop at the moment with Intel Chipseries graphics card thing and it's running 15 fps on WoW and 40 fps if I'm in an empty room with virtually nothing in it, so the Alienware should be beastly, right?
