    Unreal tournament 2003 is out this friday but in the next few weeks we will see a lot of great games coeming out eg mario sunshine this friday iss pro evouloution 2 november 1st championship manager 4 star fox adventures grand theft auto vice city.

    Will you be saveing your money for 1 of the other games or will you be buying unreal tournamnet 2003.

    I have only read 1 review on this game and it got 91% i have never played online gameing on the pc do i have to find a server or does the game find a server automatically like quake 3 did on the dreamcast.

    I have an athlon 1.4mhz 512dr ram 64mb Hercules Kyro II graphics card and 600k broadband connection can anyone tell me if the game will run smoothly as i am not sure if you need a geo force 4 to make it run smooth i know you need a very powerfull pc but i dont know what they class as a powerfull pc nowdays as things change very quickly on the pc specs

    Been playing the demo since it came out, online with broadband. Definitely getting it, if I can get it, this week. When the demo was released it was reported that the worldwide internet speed halved, with so many people downloading it. You can join a server or set one up yourself easily.:cool:

    I'm really gonna miss broadband, just downloaded the 97Meg demo in 25 mins! And I'll soon be moving to a small town with no broadband and no sign of it in the forseeable future, I must be mad!!!

    It's beginning to annoy a lot of people I know who cannot get broadband because they live outside the limited 4 mile radius around the exchanges necessary for it. This is not helped by BT heavily advertising broadband adverts on Tv recently.:rolleyes:

    ut2003 demo runs fine on my pc with all options maxed. i have an athlon1.8XP with an nforce board (geforce2 eq. on board) and 512 ddr. I downloaded the latest detonator drivers and that really hepled speed things up. just a con to go and buy a new graphics card. the geforce 2/3/4 mx series are all comparable speedwise anyway. what matters is the way you set the card/drivers up. getting the latest ti may be faster but there's basicaly no need, at least perhaps until doom 3 l8 next year.
    i had an atholn xp1.6 with ati8500 which was allegedly faster than the geforce3s, but compared to the nforce board setup theres little differnce in use i.e.(MOHAA, comanche4,SOFII, Warcraft3, UT, UNREAL2003 demo) all run the same without difference, only very occasionly under extreme conditions(smoke+snow+lots of action etc.) is there any noticeable dif. only academic really.

    so dont worry about your sys spects too much, just some minor jiggery-pokery with settings/drivers and possibly minor overclocking will see u good for a while yet.

    aparantly thogh, the demo of unrea2003 has a lot of features missing and the full release will be more of a graphical feast ... weel find out soon enuf though...

    I've got an athlon 1.4Ghz, 512Mb DDR and a GeForce 2 and I'm quite happily running the full version of UT2003.

    I haven't got everything turned up to the max, but I'm more than happy with how it looks and plays (if you think the demo is good, wait till you get this).

    I'm intending on upgrading my gfx card anyway though, probably to a radeon 9700 so it will look/play even better.

    aye, its a good idea to update drivers every noe and then to fix bugs and improve performance - sometimes u actually have to for new software/op syst.
    the makers of the cards usually release major update drivers 2/3 times a year. not familiar with the kyroII though, but dont think it would be 2 diiferent form nvidia/ati.
