if you want full gameplay buy a alienware system. It has the best graphic for UT and any other games. If you know of any better post it here

I'de recomened waiting a bit, the games are still in development and won't be out for a while. So if you wait you can get what we call good hardware now at a cheeper price then, or what we will call good hardware (so it's better then the stuff out now) for the same cost.
Just wait, it'll save you in the end.

Falcon Northwest is uber 1337. They are the way to go. They are the most expensive, but they get all the new parts before they are released. They are a semi-local company for me. They have gotten more awards from magazines than i can mention. I can't remember website though.

You can build a better system for less. Much less. Those machines...badass as they are are way overpriced.
Just buy a good Mobo, I recommend a 64 bit board and get a top end AMD 64 bit proc. 2gb of high speed ram and a 512Mb vid card (ATI or Invidia) and Sound Blaster Audigy gamer with a kick ass speaker system and of course stripe yourself a pair of 10,000 rpm Raptor Drives (SATA).
You will have a better system that costs $1,000 less than the alienware.
Off the top of my head I would say a system like this would cost around $1,000 - $1,400 (depends on if you need to buy a good case (Antec liquid-cooled is my pref) and CD/floppy drives, etc)
Alienware machines seem to be in the 2k range or more.

When you count in the extras that Falcon gives you it's almost worth it. Either way, he asked for best gaming rig. Did not mention price. Here is the link btw: [url]www.falcon-nw.com[\url]

no s**t sherlock. Alienware are the best of the best, and also the most expensive. last time i checked the cheapest gaming PC from them was atleast twelve hundred bucks

Again, i will state. Alienware is NOT the best. Any system that can be bought at Best Buy, is not the greatest. They are also NOT the most expensive. Read the latest Computer Gaming World mag. It has a brand new top of the line computer for $10,000.00. I doubt that Alienware does. It sports two 512meg vid cards. What's that, never heard of a 512Mb vid card? They get them before release. When CGW ran tests on the comp, it smashed all of the newly set standereds and oblieterated all performance records. Check them out, you will be a convert.

ohhh, do you have a link for that? i want to see it. who makes it? i saw a while ago that Nvidia made a comp like that, its the quietest PC ever, it has no fans or cooling systems, its a giant heat sink. and it weighs a hundred pounds. is that the one your talking about? i have heard of 512 video cards.

The GDC 2005 tech demos (Epic's) were run on two 512Mb Nvidia GF6800 Ultras in SLI or something along those lines.

Build it yourself.
It's fun! =P
05-19-2005, 06:17 AM
I love to build my own. But nothing beats Tech Support that is not out-sourced.
www.falcon-nw.com, that is the website for the company. You have to build it your self on-line.

"The GDC 2005 tech demos (Epic's) were run on two 512Mb Nvidia GF6800 Ultras in SLI or something along those lines."
hehe, you're definitely on the safe side with that but you won't need it to run that game...
in an interview mark reign said they were still optimizing the engine so all the requirements could decrease.
and of course you'll be able to run that game best with the biggest alienware rig but you won't need it... maybe if you're only going to play that game if you can max out all the settings...
but think about fallback and stuff and options you can turn off manually in .ini files and stuff...
(yeah, i'm quite aware this thread is 'the BEST pc...' but as some of the posts read like: you need THIS rig to be ABLE to play it...)
but yaeh, we'll just have to wait... after all the unreal engine 3 has been demonstrated last year on a single geforce6800 GT afaik and it ran... sometimes a bit choppy but as said before, the guys are still optimizing the engine.
