I Recently decided to purchase a new PC, but its a Unique pc in that its strictly designed for gaming,

I hope the link works, it doesn't use Windows OS however, it says that Origin is compatible. my question would be is with it Being a Steam OS how would this PC Stack up to running SWTOR?

 

I have had several PC's over the time since SWTOR opened and they never could run this game without some type of graphic glitch or flaws.

 

If anyone has info on what this PC is like running SWTOR, That would be great! Thanks!

The i5-4590T is a low power version of the i5-4590, but it should handle SWTOR well enough'

 

The graphics card isn't exactly specified, but as far as I know it's an OEM version of an entry-level consumer card with a few tweaks. It should also handle SWTOR well enough at some reasonable graphics level.

 

The only problem is the SteamOS, which I think is based on Linux. I don't think there's a Linux or SteamOS version of SWTOR. So you might need to install Windows on the machine to play SWTOR.

 

If you are not too concerned about the size or look of a system, you should be able to find a Windows system with the same sort of performance for around the same price.

 

For example:

Which has a bit better CPU.

Which has a better CPU and Windows 10, but you might want to add a graphics card. The integrated Intel graphics will work though, on low-ish settings.
