Any hope for Unreal 3 Engine games on my current system?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Any hope that I will be able to play Unreal Engine 3 games on my current rig at the resolution of 1280x1024? Possibly turning off HDR and soft shadows to increase performance? Or should I already start saving to build an SLI rig next summer to play UT2007. So many games are going to use Unreal Engine 3, and as of now, it looks like all will be alienated except the 7800GTX SLI users (according to various forums).

You need a better CPU that is for certain. The unreal games are very CPU dependant and your does not look like it's going to cut it. The min requirements that I heard were a 3.0Ghz CPU with a recommended of 4.0Ghz but it's all just speculation as of now. Your card seems alright don't worry about it, focus on more ram and a better CPU

That would make it run better but little is known about how much they really help a computer. There really is not enough info about it to give a definite yes. But if you upgrade your cpu you could most likely run it fine.

As far as I know unreal 3 engine is 64-bit only. So you need a 64 bit OS and processor to play it. I'm not 100% sure on this but ive been told this by more than 1 person.

Let me say this as a economic savy person they are not going to release a game that they can only market to a certain group of individuals who have high end computers. They may make games that can untilize these technology but I'am quite sure that you will be able to still run the games on a 2 year old system. Most people can still run the newer games on a 5700 card even if its on the lower settings. Its cost of production has to be less than what it can take in on sales and if the game has to high requirements it will not be that marketable and therefor not sell as many copies and not make a profit.
