Proper development rig

I can run UDK and Blender 2.78 at the same time. But when it comes to Unreal Engine 4.16.2, my PC crashes. I do not have a very good PC and at this point I just wanna limit the RAM usage; in a time span of 20mins or something similar to that, my PC just crashes. Here are my specs:

  • Windows 7 Professional (64-bit)
  • Intel Core i3 5th Gen 2.9GHz (dual core)
  • 4GB DDR3 RAM
  • 32MB VRAM
  • Intel Integrated Graphics 2500 HD

I know that I have to have more than 8GB of memory since I have integrated graphics and I know that I need a better graphics driver. But I’ve read posts about UE4’s system requirements, they say that you need more than 16GB of DDR4 memory. At this point I’m just confused and I just wanna build a proper rig for UE4. Any help would be very much appreciated. Have a great day.

Unfortunately I don’t think you have a nearly powerful enough rig for development, especially with that Integrated Graphics chip. The amount of RAM you have is also a limiting factor here, especially in combination with the chip I mentioned above, because that will consume part of your RAM.
