I understand, because I want to play star wars: the old republic on new computer soon.
Sorry to say but you wont be playing SWTOR on this computer.
It's a poorly coded game that require a fairly good computer.
When i played the game i had a Core I5 750 overclocked with a XFX 6950 xxx and 4GB of ram and i could barely run the game at 1650x1080 resolution. It was playable but not totally smooth i actually had to turn some settings down.
You could probably get along with the A4 (not sure can't find reviews of it) but this card is surely way too weak for SWTOR.
If you can't afford a proper gpu maybe you could try to spend that 40$ on improving the APU. Maybe a A8-5600k could be playable at low res and low settings. Don't forget that the A serie of APUs comes with an entry level gpu. Adding an entry level dedicated gpu is mostly a waste of money.
