These are the system requirements...

Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz or better
Operating System:

Note: PCs using a built-in graphical chipset are recommended to have 2GB of RAM.

You won't be able to play SW:TOR on that system without punching your desk in frustration. Your system has reached the point where both a CPU and GPU upgrade are impractical. It's unlikely that upgrading either would let you play SW:TOR anyways.

If you wanted to try anyways then upgrade your GPU first. If that doesn't work you're probably SOL.

GPU isn't going to do ****e, swtor basically needs a quad core to run properly.

Not surprising. You're SOL then, OP. Time for a new rig.
