I just want to share my appreciation to the Epic team for such an awesome tool and guidance on hardware for compiling source.
The specs recommended in the Wiki helped me in deciding my desktop purchase, I couldn’t go super high-end, but you get the idea:
Intel(R) Core i7-4820K Proc (4-cores, 10MB Cache)
16GB Quad Channel DDR3
256 GB SSD , not much but I’m considering an upgrade
nvidia geforce 770 2gb
I was able to build the (engine v4.1.1) from source and it took about 18 mins. The Elemental demo runs fantastic.
Thanks Epic team!
