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"

Depending on what your making that's not a bad setup. I use 12 gigs of ram an i7 8 and gtx 770 and I push a decent ways into. U can create some large levels.

I suggest getting a cheaper PSU. you don't need the highest end power supply. get something like the EVGA SuperNOVA 750B2. reliable, not overly expensive. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-110b20750vr

Also maybe get a cheaper case unless you really want a window. the Fractal Design Core 2500 is a good budget case. I would spend the extra money toward a bigger SSD or toward the Xeon E3-1231.


(it gives you the warning: "The EVGA 750W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply length of 180mm exceeds Fractal Design Core 2500 ATX Mid Tower Case maximum of 155mm." ignore this warning. its false.)

here are some changes I made: better CPU (its a rebranded i7-4770 for cheaper), faster RAM (1866mhz and CL8), larger/faster SSD, cheaper (but still great) case, cheaper (but still reliable) PSU

Yes, that rig is ok. The only thing I will suggest is a bigger hard disk.

You can see the official recommend hardware here: https://wiki.unrealengine.com/Recommended_Hardware Also in the forum there are a few threads like this one where people is sharing it experience with different specs.

I currently running UE4 in a modest laptop: Intel i5 2.3ghz, 8GB RAM, NVidia GeForce 540M, and is fine for learning and working on my mobile game project.

You need at least an acceptable GPU, and more than 4GB RAM. Anyway as soon you open UE4 go to scalable settings and set all to low. Disabling motion blur and high quality effects you can play nice with UE4.

In case your project is more ambitious like big outdoors with high polycounts and complex shading then you have to upgrate to most powerfull pc.
