Characteristically as well, Unreal engine games are more CPU and memory subsystem intensive than they are graphics card intensive. I ran UT2004 at the same settings on my 9700 Pro as I did on my 6800GT, the biggest boost in performance I got from the game was overclocking my 3400+ ClawHammer from 2.2GHz to 2.7GHz. For those wanting to enjoy this game to its fullest, based on recommended equipment and past experiences with Unreal engine games, I say a dual core processor is a must. I'm also intrigued to see the Ageia physics processor is to be supported, guess I'll need one of those too.
EDIT: They mean 2.8GHz Pentium 4. Because you'll notice in the recommended specs it says 3.4-4GHz processor, and well, unless AMD really improves their fab and 4GHz chips become common in the next couple months, I doubt that's what they mean
Wait, how does this make me wrong? All I said was people will start upgrading for this game because they will want to run it all maxed out. I would be shocked if my system couldn't run it at ATLEAST medium settings, 1280x1024, 2xaa 16xaf.
Hah, for HIGH DETAILS they reccomend a 6800GT, I guess not many of us will have to upgrade for this game then. lol.
