.. that had no chance whatsoever of visiting GDC what it is we need to upgrade our PC:s for?
Those videos that "leaked" doesnt do the presentations justice so why not post the proper ones here on these forums?
These forums could use a boost anyway :)

The Demos at GDC were running on a 6600 GT and considering i'm currently running a 6800 GT I'm already set for the first UE3 title. :D

Are you sure that they were running on a 6600GT???
If so, sweet!!!11 :D

Thats what I remmeber Mark Rein saying.

w00t - 6600GT?!?!?!
in some german games mag i've read that you at least need a geforce6 gfx-card. but that's like the minimum specs. the mag also says minimum would be like -> 2,8 ghz cpu and 512 mb ram :)
if that stays the same until the game hits the market the i'd be set ;)
but anyway - i'll prepare for playing ue3 titles on medium detail and a lower resolution just in case ^^

Yes, a GeForce 6 is the minimum since it's the only videocard that supports PixelShader 2.0 (if I remember correctly).

not sure if that demo was running on a 6600GT
thou i read Mark Rein saying that a 6600GT would "easily" run UE3 based titles :)
Well... i've a 6600GT and i'm hoping to get another by hte midle of the year to SLI them. So yeah... release the game! :D

argh... i could kick myself in the a$$ for not having bought an SLI compatible system...
would have been a lot easier that way... argh... :(

I am wondering, how important is that PPU?

The GeForce FX (GeForce 5) also supports Pixel Shader 2.0 operations, but the implementation is not good enough to render it on a massive scale.
The GeForce 6800 is really a big step forward with it's 16 rendering pipelines and shader 3.0 support.

6600 will be enough, however, I have no doubt in my mind that with all of the effects on, in a big map, it would be quite the luxury to have a 6800 or equivalent.
BTW, there's no proof that the computer running the demos at GDC was using a 6600, just that UE3 will work on one.
