hello,

ive played wot since the early beta. and altough my laptop was bought for my school it ran wot quit fine at a stabell 30-40fps.
years have past and wot demanded more and more from my laptop, to even this point where im playing at an 15-20fps with drops,
so i was thinking off giving my laptop (hp pavilion dv7) to my dad since he working on a 5 year old laptop that doesnt even run a movie proper and
is jelous aboout my multimedia function and HDMI port for connecting to the TV
now the fps wasnt going to be a problem if it was stabel and thats not the case espacially when im driving my favourite tanks and yes there all mediums and orientated to fast manouvering.
so the point comes for me to get a new pc and i wanna build it myself with help from friend who studied that.
can you guys give me advice on wich components are best for wot (also keep in mind i wanna game other stuff to)
i hope to achieve a very stabel 60fps (more is okay but as long as there will none to rarely a fps drop) on a resolution off 1600/900
further information is that i prefer to have a Nvidia (just personal preferenc so no warfar plz about amd/ati being better)
total price must not become higher then €2000 euro (keep in mind that i also need to buy my monitor, headset, keyboard, mouse,... in that total price range)

many thanks for ever information you guys can give and plz also give arguments
gives me more detailed information to consider between the many awnsers

Lol, for €2000 you can buy a monster PC, at least for WoT purposes.

But make sure that you buy a good optical mouse with good sensor (doesn't need to be "gaming mouse", here's a guide http://www.esreality...post&id=2024663) and good, big, gaming mouse pad for total comort of aiming (maybe QCK Heavy?).

With a price tag of 2K € you can build a real fast machine ... . But here u go:

CPU: i7 3770K + aftermarkt cooler like this one ~290€ + 40€
GPU: GTX 670 (look for a good/silent custom design) ~380€
Mainboard: Z77 from Asus or Gigabyte ~150€
RAM: 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz ~50€
PSU: 500W from Seasonic, FSP or BeQuiet is enough - pls no cheap firecrackers ... ~80€
Storage: 256GB SSD (Samsung 830) for OS and programms + 1 TB HDD ~200€
Case: a question of taste ~100€

TFT: Dell Ultrasharp U2412M ~250€
Headset: Corsair Vengeance 1500 ~80€
mouse + keybord: question of taste ~80€


-> 1700€ (prices in germany atm) if I didnt miss something

that are german ONLINE prices - if you go into stores u ll pay around 2500€ I think.

my machine isnt exactly the same but pretty similar.

3 remarks:

- stick with the recomendation of the SSD or if you plan something different ask someone who knows about SSDs. There is still rubbish sold in this area.
- never ever buy cheap PSUs - its not about wattage but about quality (thats why I listet 3 solid manufactures)
- the TFT I recommended is 16:10 and ISP-panel - an all around TFT also suited for office not just for games and films

my GPU is weaker (GTX570) and I have overclocked the cpu (4.1 GHz - WoT is cpu limited single core shit). I m using a shitload of mods/skins including such that alter the graphic (improved).

The performance fps wise is all over the place depending on the map and situation - overall its playable (min fps 30-40) at 1920x1200 with everything except post processing (hate that BS) at max - the thing is that WG isnt able to fix certain problems on maps and snipermode. as long as this isnt fixed you will have drops in fps from time to time. But you can play WoT vanilla at full HD all maxed out with this config and never get below 30 FPS if you employ the scopeshadow remover.

atm I m playing around with real MSAA and SGAA instead of this fucking FXAA. That is only possible with Nvidia gpus and some tweaking with programms like NVIDIA Inspector. Its not working perfectly yet but looks much better than the BS WG implemented with this new render.
