Help buying computer for Unreal
As I have used the Unreal Engine for the past few months on a Macbook Pro Mid-2012 retina, I have noticed that I need to get a new computer since the editor simply performs too slow on my machine with a medium-sized scene.
I have done some research and have come to the following specs:
Asus-Z97M-Plus LGA1150 motherboard Corsair Vengeance Pro Black 16gb RAM 2xGb Intel Core i7 4770K Quad-Core 3.5Ghz w/ Hyperthread 256Gb SSD (+ case, 600W power supply, and basic stuff)
For everything, except the videocard (which I haven't figured out yet), the build comes to $1264 CAD on NCIX.com*
I have two questions
Thank you very much for your help, it will be greatly appreciated.
NOTE: I am a 3D artist and I am going to be doing my college demo reel in UE4. I'd love to be able to use UE4 without lag.

well first of all your build is complete overkill yeah i recomend having 16GB of ram but a 17 4770k is OVERKILL you could do just fine with a i5 mid to higher end CPU and you dont really need a ssd unless ofcoarse you're running a REALLY big scene with tons of assets. i have a 16GB of ram computer with a 770, i7-3820 CPU and a 2TB hybrid drive and i run like clockwork at full settings its perfectly fine but still overkill go for a mid to high-end computer and you'll be set there's no sense in spending the extra cash for no real benefit
