    Will UT3 run on my compy?

    Athlon 64 3200+ (2GHz single core)
    1 GB RAM
    GeForce 7600 GS
    WinXP

    Thanks in advance!

    I would say it's possible - but don't expect ANYTHING of it. It might even be quite low FPS, even with all settings on the lowest possible. I suggest you try the demo to be sure.

      The 7600 GS can get you frames averaging about 25-30(everything on low, 1280x1024 res). But your processor may limit your performance quite a bit.

      Definately try the demo before you buy.

        It will. I have a GF6600 256MB AMD Geode 2800+ and 1 gig of RAM and runs fine at 640x480 mid details.

          This Athlon is a Winchester.... Hmm... Anyone else using one?

            I had a Venice core 3200. I upgraded to a dual core Athlon 4200+ a little over a month ago for $75 because my Asus A8N MB supports dual cores. Pretty cheap and get more life out of other hardware, though I also recently upgraded to 2 GB of OCZ Platinum. If your MB supports dual core, you could upgrade. Just make sure you get the right X2 CPU model 939 or AM2 based on your MB. The game should run fine on what you have though.

            Newegg has 4200 dual core for $73 and others for a bit less (results for 939 and AM2).

              It will run, but pretty slow. Try 1024x768 with 1-1 details, it may be playable, maybe not. I first ran with a San Diego 3700+ chip with OC at 2.6GHz, it had a 1MB cache but it was too slow for the screen res I wanted to run.

              You really need to upgrade to a dual core with 1MB cache. Opteron 175, 180, and 185 are drop in dual core socket 939 chips with 1MB cache per cpu for nforce 4 based motherboards and are still available from newegg.

              My very obsolete specs;
              Opty 180 @ 2.6GHz
              DFI Infinity NF4 SLI (nforce 6.85 driver)
              2GB DDR400 (value ram)
              2 X 7950GT 570MHz 512MB SLI (169.04 driver)
              Ageia PhysX (1.1.1.14 driver)
              SB Live 24 bit (1.004.0055 driver)
              XP64 pro SP2 until Linux port arrives (AMD Dual-Core Optimizer)
              1600x1200, 3-3 quality, 50-85 FPS (I set a 85 FPS cap for offline)
              1600x1200, 3-3 quality, 26-70 FPS PhysX maps

                those are specs very similar to my cousins computer, and we were able to get it running at a decent framerate with 1200x1600 resolution but screen percentage at 50 and all settings lowest. He had a really crappy videocard so I'd say go for the demo and see if you get settings that are worth it. if not ps3s come as low as 319, and they're guaranteed to run it.
