Well besides FPS gameplay smooth etc
What role does the GPU play in compiling etc? or is this all just CPU based?
I have a HD 4870 512MB card and looking to develop 2D games to port to android etc so I am assuming I don’t need any fancy GPU. I forced DX 10 mode with the -d3d10 extension in UE4 shortcut. So the crashing seems to be gone for now.
I see the core i3 haswell 3.5GHZ has dropped to a all time low of $109 on Amazon.
My current chip is a haswell pentium G 3220 but stinks. Since the core i3 does 4 threads maybe it would make a huge difference?
Kinda regret not buying AMD because a fx 6300 AMD is $98 on amazon right now. And I bet its double the speed of the $109 i3 haswell 3.5GHZ
