Hey guys, I just pulled the trigger on a MSI GT780DX-406 w/GTX 570m 1.5GB.
Just waiting for it to arrive this week sometime(all the way up in Alaska).

My question is, how well will this run SWTOR?? I was hoping to run it at max setting with good fps(>60), but have been hearing all sorts of complaints about low fps on high end machines. Just want to know if anyone here has some experience with either this card or this laptop on SWTOR.

Thanks :D

The 570m is very close to my GTX285 in all benchmarks I've seen.
It runs very well except for war zones where you have to live with 30-40 FPS.
On the fleet you'll have some lag, but everyone has that (I've got friends with 5870 and GTX560TI desktop cards and they experience lags in war zones and fleet too.)

I'm running maxed with 1680x1050 res and forced 4x Anti Aliasing.

Sounds good. I'll be running it at 1920x1080 so hopefully that doesn't make too much of difference.
I can definitely live with 30-40 fps in war zones and fleet. I've read that those are serious problem areas for most people right now.
Now I just have to wait impatiently for my laptop to get here!!!:)
