Hi, looking for help with my new hardware choices.
Basically I want a high performance PC just for UE4 with very large scenes (increased memory for hi-res textures everywhere that the level geometry is). I want a far draw distance which means an immense amount of geometry including a grid of all those terrain vertices = giant GPU memory AND system memory use. So basically a complete beast of a PC, extremely fast. Right now I can’t even run UE4 at 1920x1080 on my current last gen rig. I imagine dual monitors doesn’t make much of a dent in this - not sure I can have a separate GPU for the second desktop. I also want to move to a higher resolution but not 4K, it just doesn’t seem likely for more than a year (I think most people run 1920x1080 still, from a quick reading I’m satisfied with just going a bit over 1920x1080 for now).
As for GPU choice, some might wait for a new AMD/Radeon card. I was thinking either a Titan Z (12GB for large game scenes) or a 980 or dual (maybe 3) 980 cards in SLI. However what I read about SLI (and know about software dev) is worrying:
EDIT: I searched for SLI in UE4
EDIT: changed specs. See below.
