HELP ! UE4 Build


I have decided to really dive into creating with UE4. I was going to buy a laptop, however, I keep hearing that im better off just build a PC. So I’ve done some research and have come up with this build. THis is my first PC Build and I want to make sure it will be enough. I’m using a budget of $1k (not including windows OS & Optical Drive[may just use an usb one]).

Case - Corsair 450 D = $109.99

Bundle = 517.98

CPU - Intel Core i5-6600 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 1151 65W BX80662I56600 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530

Motherboard - ASUS H170 PRO GAMING LGA 1151 Intel H170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel

RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Memory Kit Model F4-2133C15D-16GRR

SSD - SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 250GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E250B/AM

HDD - WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 inch = 49.99

Video Card - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 Windforce OC 3 GB = 204.99

Power Supply - Cosair CX 750W = 74.99

for a total of $957.94

Well balanced build. Will run UE4 and any game (including VR) great.

You basically have my recent upgraded build. I have the i5 6600K and the GTX 1070. with pretty much exact other components.

If you have a couple hundred extra go for the GTX 1070. It’ll be worth it in the long run in my opinion as the weakest part of your build is now the GPU which is still good but 1070 is way better.
