I’m looking at getting into using Unreal Engine 4, I’m interested in having a go at making my own game once I learn how to basically use the engine.
First up, I’ll need to do a PSU RAM and GPU upgrade but will also purchase an extra 4tb Hard drive for storage of media or whatever is needed in future.
Anyway, I have my RAM and PSU figured out I think.
RAM; will most likely go with this http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=186_538_914&products_id=16020&zenid=cf62dcafab33143c1fe15bb635f0922e
PSU, will most likely go with this http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=15_226&products_id=16143&zenid=cf62dcafab33143c1fe15bb635f0922e
GPU, I’m not sure, looking at the recommendations of Unreal Engine 4, you need something like a 470 GTX or 6870 HD or higher.
I’m not too knowledgeable when it comes to GPU’s to be honest, and I don’t really want to spend over 300AUD on a GPU.
These things need to fit a CM 690 Mid tower case, so I’m not sure if the PSU/RAM will fit, I’m assuming they should be okay.
Mobo is a Gigabyte X58A-UD3R, so if you see any compatibility issues with what’s listed so far let me know.
I’m trying to get this done with a budget, I’d like to keep it under 1,000AUD, or more if possible, while still allowing me to be able to use the game engine properly without too many issues.
I’d build an entirely new system but I’m saving up for other stuff at the moment so can’t justify that, otherwise I would lol, unless someone can recommend a new build that can meet 1,000AUD and run Unreal Engine 4 that it is than I’d consider it.
On the whole GPU thing, I’d rather stick with trusty old AMD as I am more familiar with them, but if Nvida have a bang for buck GPU that AMD can’t match or beat I’ll consider swapping.
Some more questions,
If I decide I want to properly get into game developing, what do I need if I want to create my own textrues? Do I need another program ?
Cheers guys, hopefully all these questions won’t annoy you too much.
You’ll be getting more once I get into the engine
