Default Hardware option

Hey everyone,

I am building a new machine to play the new star wars mmo when it come out if ever, and I want to run it all out.

Here is what I have
Case - HAF 932
Mobo - EVGA FTW3
Ram- - Muskin 1600 DDR3 12GB (3x4)

Here are the option
Video card
EVGA 470 - $285
EVGA 580 - $385

I7 950 or 2600 -$310
I7 2600k - $340

And is it worth getting a 128GB SSD to load the OS windows7 and the game only? everythign else will be loaded to a sata drive or a few of them.

Thjanks in advance

seems a bit silly, to buils an i7 rig just to play an mmo that might not even release? lol
EVGA SLI Micro Z68 // Intel i5-2500k // 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz // Overclocked 2GB MSI R9 270X // Corsair Carbide SPEC-03 // Kingston Hyper-X 120GB // 2TB WD Green + 500GB WD Black

Thanks I will look into the 460

As for building a rig for just an mmo, I will be doing alot more then just that on it. Its just one of the things I plan on doing with it I am sure there will be alot more then just SWTOR on it when it comes out. Portal 2 and an other fps will be played on it as well.

Any opinions on CPU's ?
