Star Wars Galaxies was truly a great experience.  It opened the door to the first Star Wars MMO.  As most already know, those doors will close when Star Wars Galaxies will be no more.  A new chapter is here.  Star Wars: The Old Republic will bring new MMO players, and I’m sure those from Galaxies.  The burning question is still System Requirements.  What will it take to play this PC MMO?  Stay tuned…
