Back of the Box
SWTOR - The Galactic Republic stood for generations as a bastion of peace in a galaxy of warring star systems. Protected by its stalwart Jedi guardians, the Republic held the greatest hope for the progress of civilization and galactic unity.
Deep in unknown space, however, a mighty Sith Empire was forged, led by dark Sith Lords who dreamt of galactic domination and vengeance against their ancient Jedi enemies. After centuries of preparation, the time came for the Sith to make their return.
With a massive fleet and an awe-inspiring army of fearless troops, the Sith Emperor launched a surprise assault, quickly capturing dozens of worlds in the Outer Rim, and sparking a war unlike any other in the galaxys history.

CPU: Intel Core2 Duo Processor 2.0 Ghz / AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4000

AMD 3300M
Radeon HD 6480g
4gb ram
(i know the thing is a piece of crap but if i meet the minimum requirements and GD is saying i should be able to run it on med settings, why am i getting 20 fps?)

No "Can you run it" service is guaranteed. The best way to know is to try the game. But i recommend that you turn your resolution down, install some drivers, and try again. Your specs are pretty good. your cpu is better than mine. I

I suggest to uninstall and re install it (aww maaaan) Yeah, i know its like 20 gb, but my cpu is 2% worse than yours, even on OC. I get usually 120+ fps, no lower than 100 on ultra. you should ge getting 50 or so fps on ultra.

When you load and the screen goes to black can you please try to put the game into Windowed mode by hitting Alt + Enter. If this works, you should then be able to change your settings on the character select screen. I fixed mine this way.

If that doesn't work, look at this thread. There's another way of doing it that worked for a friend of mine.
