Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Is this PC good enough for the Unreal Engine?

link text

EDIT by eXi - Reason: Merged two questions:

Sorry, I previously posted the attachment but not the question.

My son Micky is currently undertaking a computer graphics course and he has been advised that to run the Unreal Engine 4 programme he needs to upgrade his system.

I have attached a copy of the spec for a pc I am proposing to buy him but we need a little advise as to whether the graphics card and processor will be acceptable.

any advice you can provide would be gratefully received.

Regards , Adrian Orchard on behalf of Micky.

Do you want to know if this Setup can be used for the Unreal Engine? (:

Sorry, I got carried away and pressed the wrong button.

Yes, I am buying a new pc for my son, and want to make sure that the spec is acceptable to run Unreal Engine 4. - I have since re-posted my question in its entirety .

Thank you very much responding, any help you can provide would be great.

Hm, i don't want to give false advice, but i think AT LEAST the graphic card is way to weak.


I have a GTX 970 (that's maybe a BIT to much) that costs ~320€. I can play AC Unity on Ultra with 40 fps. If you now think about the Unreal Engine 4 which can create games like this (CAN, so you could take a bit slower graphic card). So here is a screenshot comparing both cards:


You can see that the graphic card in your setup is way to weak.

The processor seems to be ok, compared to mine:


But like i already said, i don't want to give false advice. The processor of mine is 2 years old. The graphic card is just 2 weeks old. I have 8GB RAM.

Also a small SSD and a medium size HDD instead of just a big HDD will make the PC run really fast.

I hope this helps you for the beginning :D

You can also have a look at the FAQ to get the information. Here is the system requirement part:

What are Unreal Engine 4's system requirements? Here's what we recommend to get started developing with UE4 right now.

  • Desktop PC or Mac Windows 7 64-bit or Mac OS X 10.9.2 or later

  • Quad-core Intel or AMD processor, 2.5 GHz or faster

NVIDIA GeForce 470 GTX or AMD Radeon 6870 HD series card or higher

8 GB RAM Maybe this also helps.
