Unreal 2003 on 600Mhz

  redelf 23:14 26 Jan 2003

My son wants be to buy him Unreal Tournament 2003 (honest, it is for him and not me) but the system specs say minimum 733 Mhz processor . I have an Athlon 600 Mhz (Slot A so probably need a new Socket A mainboard if I want to upgrade). Would UT2003 run at all, slowly, badly etc on my current CPU ?

It might run on basic settings, if you look at the specs you also need a minimum of a 16mb graphics card, 32-128 recommended.

It might be an idea to look for a newer pc or upgrade. The newer games will all start to need faster pc's. ie min 1ghz+ cpu, 64mb graphics card and 128mb ram

Thanks; looks like I will have to bite the bullet on finally upgrading - the Seychelles holiday will have to wait (again).

click here Have a look here they are a lot cheaper now than you think.

You could say a holiday only last 2 weeks and a pc will last for.....

worth a try :-)

if ya just ater upgrading ya mobo and cpu, have a look at this site click here .
also, unless ya get one of the older type of mobo which can use sdram or ddr ram, you will have to upgrade ya memory to ddr as well

If you get a new pc, make sure that you get the win xp disc with it and not just on a hidden partition on the hard drive.
