I recently bought Swtor for my Acer aspire x3300, its a very small pc and slow! It lags, a lot, I know nothing about pc's but my friend said that he will fit new parts if I buy them, now the specs for my pc are

OS-Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit CPU- AMD Athlon II X4 630 Quad Core Processor- 2.8ghz RAM- 4GB DDR3 Memory HDD- 1TB HDD Optical- DVD-Super Multi Drive Video- NVIDIA GeForce 9200 Integrated LAN- Integrated LAN 10/100/1000 MODEM- None Bios- P01-A3

I know its probably my graphics card and my ram, but my pc looks too small for some graphics cards, please help me please!

If upgrading your graphics card you are correct in that a lot of GPU's will indeed be to big for your PC as you need what is known as a low profile GPU which is much smaller, unfortunately that limits your upgrade potential a little.

Here's an idea of the type of GPU you are looking for. Low profile GPU . Not all of these cards are better tan what you have of course but until you mention what sort of budget you have it is difficult to suggest anything. It might also be useful to measure exactly how much space you have from the slot your present card is in to the outside of your case.

Something like this would be good: GT 430. Nvidia. Or AMD HD6570
