    They will release a PC demo. They only real question is when?

    I'm not really that good at patience either.

    AMD 64 3000+
    1GB RAM
    Nvidia 6600GT

    Am I basically going to be forced to get the 360 version?
    well to be honest if you read some of the interviews, they have been running the tests on 2-3 year old systems with a 7600 vid card on medium sttings...

    so I suspect your system will run UT3 ok at low to medium levels, maybe on higher levels but doubtfull.... the best would be to wait untill the spec level comes out... and then make your mind up...

    If you have a 360, it should look loads better. I've got a similar rig, except that I upgraded to 2GB RAM and an ATI 1850GTO 256MB and I will probably be lucky to run it at medium settings (my guess).

    So yeah, shell out for the 360 version, but when you get a chance to upgrade your mobo/CPU/video card that's when you might switch to PC to play.

    If he has Socket 939 he might consider upgrading to a dual core processor too (very overclockable Opteron 165 is less than $100 shipped from Newegg.com as of a few days ago) and a new video card ($150 would probably be sufficient).

    I think he really should try to get the game for the PC and not for a console because the real UT game is going to be online multiplayer. IMHO, if you don't play custom maps online, if you don't discover new mods and game types while looking for interesting servers, if you aren't involved in servers' community discussion forums, and perhaps if you haven't been a member of a clan and played clan matches in organized leagues, you're just not getting the real UT experience. He probably won't be able to do that on the XBox.

    Yeah, the only bonus I see for the 360 version is not having Assault Watered down to a "HELLBENDERRACE" mode.

    Your PC is fine. just update the Vid card and maybe a little more RAM and you should be golden.

    Well considering your PC hardware vs the 360 and how it will run. Id say the 360 version would be the better choice for you.

    Unless your willing to upgrade your CPU and Video card. If your CPU/mobo is socket 939 you can upgrade to a dual core AMD 64 x2, which are slower then core2duo's but they still hold their own and are a good value.

    As for your videocard, if it's PCI-express you can get a 7900GS for around $139, which is a killer deal and I would suspect it should be able to run UT3 decently.

    and here's a great deal on an AMD 64 x2 4200+ socket 939

    just kidding, I think you should stick to X360 with Keyboard plus mouse. I say this not cause i got some biases but by the looks of you specs. If you, for some reason do not want to play on the X360 then sure..play the PC version..but play it on minimum settings, thats all.

    If you want to play it this year.. you will have to get it for the PC (Since you have a 360 I'm guessing you don't have a PS3). Either that or wait...
    I think you will be able to play it on low settings but I'm not sure.
