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.

Would I be able to run this on a visually pleasing setting with no noticeable frame drop? KOTOR had some very minimal frame drop due to my ATI gpu, I believe.

Online games can be finicky when it comes to fps. You can definitely run it, but you'll get drops in crowded areas. But its free to play, so give it a try!

Tried to play it, and even in isolated rooms, it was severely laggy. Even on low settings and the advanced options turned off, it was unplayable.

AA, grass, shaders and bloom is off? I can play it on my laptop that has intel hd and a slower processor than yours. How fast is your internet connection?

I don't think there is a grass option in Old Republic. If you're talking about KOTOR, my pc can run it just fine. I have the Blast package with Xfinity. 50mbps.

There is. Most people dont realize it, you have to scroll down on the in game graphics preferences pane and it reveals more settings options.

YAY, I've been wanting to play this game for ages and I have had a laptop that could run it but whenever I played it, the laptop sounded like it was going to vibrate itself to death
