    Can my PC Run it?

    Hi, new guy! I just saw the demo for UT3 is out and well.. I have a problem. I want to see if I can run the demo. I'm a huge fan of Ut, and my PC works great with Ut2004. However it is sorely behind in years, and I'm wondering what I should upgrade, what to upgrade it to, and how poorly/well it will run. I'm on a tight budget too.

    Here are some specs


    Windows: Windows XP5.1 (Build 2600) Service Pack 2
    Memory (RAM): 1407 MB
    CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3000+
    CPU Speed: 1991.7 MHz
    Sound card: SRS Labs Audio Sandbox
    Display Adapters: ATI RADEON Xpress 200 Series | ATI RADEON Xpress 200 Series | NetMeeting driver | RDPDD Chained DD
    Screen Resolution: 1280 X 1024 - 32 bit

    All I really want is for it to play somewhat smoothly, and to look nice at the same time, with no problems, or fairly a small amount, if any.

      Processor : too slow
      Graphix card : too slow

        hmmm. You have 3 options I can see:

        1) The 'cheapie' option:
        --==Get the best socket 939 CPU you can, theres still a few retailers around, you should be able to find one.
        --==Assuming your mobo can handle PCIe 16x, get a new graphics card, preferably from the 8800 series (the new GT, or maybe a GTS 320 MB). If you can't afford the 8800 series, go for one from the 8600.
        this aims to run it comfortably at a low/medium setting

        2) The 'middle of the line' option:
        --==Upgrade your mobo to something Intel Core 2 Duo capable, with a PCIe 16x slot (pretty standard nowadays)
        --==Get a decent Core 2 Duo CPU (the E6550 comes to mind)
        --==Get a 8800 series card
        This system aims to run it comfortably at a medium setting

        3) The 'all out blow-the-balls off your cat' option:
        --== Get a good Intel Core 2 Quad capable mobo.
        --== Get a Intel Core 2 Quad 6600 CPU
        --== Get a 8800GT (out soon!)
        --== Get 2 Gig's of DDR 1066 RAM
        --== Get a Creative X-Fi Sound card
        Chuck it all in a designed-for-overclockers case with wicked cooling and overclock like a beast...
        Aims to run it comfortably on not-quite-the-highest setting

        I'm going for somewhere between option 2 and 3, and my system is a little more recent than yours.

        I can't really tell you prices (unless its in NZ$), but over here option 2 would cost twice what option 1 did, and option 3 would cost thrice what option 1 did.

        Depending on the markets in America/Europe/wherever you are, people might recommend differently, which is fine by me, as this is judged by NZ standards.

          Runs it on highest settings without a hitch. I don't think the improved textures in the retail will change that...

            first off, i can't believe there is still these posts. second off, no your computer can't run it. you can simply look for the specs which are posted at every game site on the web before spamming the forum

              Those systems would both run it on the highest settings.

                Well I am also planning for the future
                the beta demo, probably, though with 4xAA and 16xAF I doubt it.

                The full version will have higher res textures, which could widen the gap between those two systems.
