im doing a few small upgrades for my PC so i can install and run UE4. To that end im getting windows 8.1. but that doesnt really do anything for performance.
im not replacing my CPU atm or my GPU, though i may add a 2nd GPU later or replace it based on cost(my pc has room for a 2nd).
but for a little bit of money i was thinking of either adding 16GB more memory for a total of 32GB(though this wouldnt really benefit me outside of UE4) or getting a SSD.
the SAMSUNG 850 evo seems to still be popular and allot of people still recommend it, the price is also good from what i can tell. at 100$ 250GB seems like a good size and is right where im comfortable spending atm. the 500GB version at 200$ is outside my comfort zone and seems to be bigger then what i need. the 1TB version just seems insane. At most id be sticking windows 8.1, unreal engine and microsoft visual studio on it(unless anyone has advice or recommendations otherwise). The SSD would also speed up my PC in general where as the 32GB of memory wont be otherwise noticed outside of UE4.
i could potentially get the memory and the 100$ SSD, or maybe just the larger SSD for 200$ but no memory… but thats stretching it atm.
I prefer to buy for what i need and not replace components if possible. if the 250GB SSD isnt going to cut it and im going to need a bigger one then ill just have to get a bigger one.
for a rough idea of what ill be doing in UE4, ill be trying to make a large scale game, though it will use allot of repeat content, same meshes etc just different textures to make things not all be the same.
Any advice or recommendations ares appreciated.
(btw, is there any way to delete threads? or do you guys just archive them?)
