  1. Nah, man. 16gigs is enough for now. When you start developing properly and have multiple assets and stuff like that, start monitoring your RAM usage and then consider buying. No need to spend money yet. That would be my recommendation. Now, about the "average programmer at Epic". They have high end workstations because their livelihood depends on highly complicated and advanced development pipelines and they can't afford their systems stalling and chugging slowly. They have a lot of overhead on their workstations and for code compiling I imagine they use servers. That's a meaningless thin
  2. Are you learning programming or are you a seasoned programmer and are just starting with Unreal? Chances are, if you're asking that sort of question, that you don't need so much RAM. I've done a bit of Unreal programming and 16gigs is more than enough to start.
  3. He already has an SSD and an HDD. He uses his SSD solely for Doom. In the first reply I wrote I suggested you @muiz92switch the SSD and HDD. But then deleted it and forgot to include it the second time. Put the OS on your SSD and use the HDD for a mass storage device for your games. Load times are not that dramatically changed and SSDs are, as @Moonzystated, a game changer if you install the OS on them. BAM! Money saved, SSD purchase postponed until you get your other components in check. Oh, and UP THE IRONS!
  4. If you want an AMD processor, you're gonna need a new motherboard, since the one you have is for Intel CPUs only. So that there is 2 products right of the bat. My suggestion to you, depending on your current budget, would be to get yourself a new reputable PSU and an i3 or i5 or even an i7 intel CPU. And another 8GB stick of RAM. Just getting yourself off of the Pentium brand into the i-series will be a jump in performance along with the memory.
  5. CPU temp can fluctuate quickly and there's always a delay with monitoring software. Judging from the screenshot your fan curve shows that your fan is always on at about 30% fan speed up until 55 degrees C. It ramps up at temps above that. I could be wrong in interpreting the graphs though...
  6. I'd search on the second hand market place for such a PC. There's bound to be a vast offering if you look for it. Any new part almost will drive the price up unnecessarily. I'd say look at the specs for Fallout New Vegas and just find something a gen or two newer and you'll be fine. If you find a PC with a first or second gen i7 (either 920 or 2600k) and an adequately newer GPU, It'll work great.
  7. Really? The NvMEs don't turn off SATA ports anymore?
  8. Not a problem. Just make sure to read the manual and find out which SATA ports get turned off when you add NvME drives. Edit: crossed the irrelevance for this MB...
  9. 2 x M.2 x4 PCIe Gen 4 & SATA mode Manuals are ok, but the real info is always available on the website https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/TUF-GAMING-X570-PLUS-WI-FI/
  10. Not that I know of. Also, does a warranty not exist where you live?
  11. yes. a local network and a script should be equally as efficient. A friend has this set up at his house. As soon as he connects his phone to his wifi, his photos and videos start uploading to his storage devices.
  12. much more reliable though, even if it's a bit more of a fuss than connecting to gdrive. Eventually, when google decides they're just not gonna support yet another one of their products, you're gonna be left stranded. There are of course ways to mitigate this and while it is highly unlikely google is just gonna abandon gdrive, I have zero faith in them as they've proven time and again they're neglectful towards their own creations.
