Try out this site: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/ (scans your notebook to check if your notebook is good enough to play specific games)

For my notebook it gets result fast, so I think yours would be to 🙂
Asus G73SW-91058V 3D

- BIOS 205

I tested my G74sx-nh71 using that site and it was reporting I only have 719mb of video memory. CPU-Z is telling me I have 1024mb. I know I have 3gb, so I opened the Nvidia control panel and it does report 3gb dedicated memory. Sooo....not sure what's up with that.

Anyone able to shed some light on this discrepancy?

@fuzon

Did the systemrequirementslab.com tell you that you got 719MB ?

If so you're not alone with wrong info there. They say I got 4GB on the vRAM but on my sticker (on the notebook) says 1.5GB.

But besides that, that site is good to use to check if you can run a specific game 🙂

@Skye, we got very simular specs on with the G73JW you're asking about and mine. (the difference is CPU and CHIPSET)

I think that you will have noe problem with playing SWTOR on that notebook 🙂
