    New Development PC

    I'm looking for some quick advice on graphics card options for a new development system.

    We've been toying around with UDK a little bit here and there as we make a transition from our programming and web development jobs to creating our first game. That being said, my 4 year old laptop is just not cutting it anymore and I need some advice.

    I've looked at the min specs on the UDN and I've been looking at a Dell T3500 workstation with 12gb of ram, a quad core Xeon W3550 processor, and right now it's configured with an NVidia Quadro 4000 card. Am I being foolish when I think it would be better for me to purchase a GTX card (as an example, a GTX 560) in lieu of a workstation class card like the Quadro?

    We are still very small, and this is our first game. Even years from now, I can't see the need for a workstation class graphics card. We won't be using Maya, rarely use 3ds Max, more frequently Blender, and UDK and Visual Studio for programming. I think it would be best to go with a high performance consumer card like the GTX so I can both create games and play test them on the same machine. I'm not concerned that it takes me an extra minute to render a character in a modeler program.

    Can anyone add their opinion to this?

    Hello all...

    I am a mac user who is going to switch to PC after much self debate.

    Basically, I make sounds for computer games and wildlife documentaries as well as music. I study digital Musicianship at college here in the UK and am going to be moving on towards either a degree in sound design, music technology or wildlife & Media.

    I bought a book called the game audio tutorial. I gather it runs through the basics of how to program audio and implement audio into a game using UDK.

    Can anyone help me to know whether or not I will be able to use UDK smoothly on The following laptop: http://www.asuslaptop.co.uk/proddeta...d=N55SF-S2342V ( I WILL UPGRADE THE RAM TO 8GB )

    Thanks to anyone who can offer any advice. From what Ive looked at this seems the best option for my audio production needs I just now need to know whether or not the laptop can handle UDK...

    by the way the link to the book is here: http://www.thegameaudiotutorial.com/

    Cheers.

    -Simon

    Is the SM-3 compatibility a new spec? Maybe that's why my July 2011 beta won't run. My January 2011 beta runs though.

    I just recently upgraded to Windows 7 64... I'm getting scared that my PC isn't good enough? I can't install the UDK getting a missing files error.

    Graphics Card Question

    Epic’s documentation on recommended specifications for Level Designers recommends a dual (2) Quad-Core Xeon Processors and a separate graphics card. However, Intel® HD Graphics 2000 Technology, is integrated into the 2nd generation Quad Core processors (for example the Intel i7-2600K). The Intel website reports this eliminates the need for a discrete graphics card, thus reducing power consumption and system cost. If this is so, is a separate graphics card such as the nVidia GeForce GTX 285 needed? What is the difference between Intel’s HD Graphics 2000 Technology and the nVidia GeForce GTX 285 (1 GB DDR3)?
