The dedicated server was infinitely easier to setup and configure than UT3. And it didn't require a full cone NAT router either to show up on the Internet server browser list. Only one port to forward. Part of the ease was a fully documented pdf file provided with the dedicated server files. The other part was it was just easy to setup. A couple tweaks to the provided config files and batch script and it just worked. Amazingly, my server is a Core 2 Duo E8500 and I never saw the CPU blip. With 5-6 people in at one time (which obviously isn't a lot of people as the server can handle up to 32), still with Crysis normally killing people's PCs, I was expecting some kind of hit for the server.
