This of course depends on your video card. Usually Opengl is faster but direct3d has a higher compatibility. What is your video card? (for newer cards use direc3d)

To see which one your currently using, start UT, go to Options>Preferences>Video

It should say which one you are using at the top of the window, and also a button to change the driver if you wish.

Thanks!

I use Direct3D :P

Edit: D3D9 is great! The graphics are loading much faster!
