        The computer that can run max still has to be invented...
        Thats what i heard in an interview, that we might be able to play with much higher resolutions in the future.

                Why ask us if your PC will run UT3? We don't know system requirements for the game either....

                  Well i heard (read) somewhere that ut2007 (ut3) was played on two 8800GTX on high-res on high level.

                    Well, right now it's a little unbalanced. If you spend a little less on the video card (get a 8800GTS) and spend a little more on the processor (the Core2 Duo is a good choice at the moment) you'll get a lot more performance for roughly the same price.

                        doesn't look like it will do so hot, and thats just quake 4. But I'm not sure which pentium D is yours there.

                          What resolution are you running at?

                          Something low like 1280x1024 should handle high-to-max fine...


                          You have to understand that in most review sites they run resolutions higher than 1600x1200 with lots of AA/AF. Now play at 1280x1024 with 2x/4x AA and no AF and you'll be smooth sailing..


                          Also, if you have a bad CPU and a l33t GFX card now don't worry about it (I have an 8800GTX and a AMD 4200+ X2). CPU prices are expected to take a huge dive, so it will be a good time to buy after UT3/Crysis hits.

                          But, from what I can see, your CPU is pretty nice compared to mine.... All comes down to the resolution of your monitor now.

                              They already said that they are aiming for medium settings on a 2 year old PC with a 7800 card. That sounds very reasonable. I don't think we have to be manic about insane requirements anymore. Anybody who is building today will get a great experience, even people who built last year have nothing to worry about and if you build in a few months from now you will only get an even greater experience. We're lucky it's Epic, some new games out there are only playable on lowest settings even on the absolute ultra gaming pc today for whatever reason....

                              I think there is a post by Mark Rein somewhere approximately saying that a grand rig today will run the game really well, of course, but that a new PC in a year or two will be able to run the game even better. like : high settings today, holy ultra mega resolution tomorrow.
