Howdy!

I'm thinking about buying me a desktop as I'm tired of playing on the 5year old laptop which gives me an average 7fps on lowest settings.
The problem is that I'm even worse @ computers than @ tanks    so I'm in dire need of some (professional?) advice.

The only thing I know about computers is that it will need a decent video card and processor to run WoT.
My budget would be up to 1100ish € or a 1400ish $, obviously if it's 1450 or something more it wouldn't be any problem.

So I'd like to ask which specs should I look for when I go to the store (tell me everything you know if you have the time).
Experiences with hardware you use yourself are also greatly appreciated of course.

Many thanks in advance!

My Alienware M14x came powered by an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7-3720QM processor clocked at 2.6GHz– rising to 3.6GHz when in Turbo mode. This was backed up by 8GB of DDR3 1600MHz RAM. You can opt for a slightly faster Core i7-3820QM and up to 16GB of RAM.  http://www.dell.com/...ware-m18x-r2/pd sky~

look for a good pc builder and get an pre-overclocker i5 set up with a GTX660 or what ever AMD card matches it and 8 gi gof ram.
This is what I would call a mid range gaming PC.

you dont need an i7 cpu,
an SSD would be nice but might not be woth the cost if you want to save money.

I wouldent go near a "Gaming" laptop" my self, cost way to much for what you get.

everything with I5 and a 1-2 gb gfx card should hold... im using that on my laptop, but i mostly play on my desktop, though.

it runs at low/medium setting at 60 fps.

If you don't know shit about computers and want to buy one. You should research it before you spend your cash on anything like some crappy alienware PC.
People on tech forums are more then willing to help you with this. I hardly doubt that most people on here know much about their computers at all.
Just go to the forum of a site like Anandtech or Tomshardware and ask for some help there.

But to give you some hard names and such. Try to go for a Ivy bridge/third generation  i5 processor. And a Nvidia GTX660 or an AMD Radeon 7870

Otherwise, just tell me your demands, budget, and the country you live in and I will help you along

Don't get an i7 processor for gaming. The difference between an i7 and i5 is something called hyperthreading (HT). HT isn't used for games and is more at home editing videos etc. I bought my gaming pc from Chilliblast. Drop them an email with your budget and they'll email you back a build. My pc was cheaper coming from them than I could source the same parts for and build myself. I opted for their Firebird. I changed the standard processor and didn't get a mouse or keyboard. For just over £1100 I got an i5 overclocked to 4.6ghz, 16gb of ram (overkill), 120gb ssd, 2tb hdd, a Nvidia GTX680 graphics card and a 23" monitor. Obviously the motherboard and psu as well.

CPU is generally not that important for gaming... It's mostly the video card that makes the big difference. I myself always pick AMD systems because AMD motherboard + CPU is cheaper than an Intel combination. Then I use the money I saved for a better video card.

Not for WoT.
Welcome singlecore Horror.
WoT is so much based to CPU agaisnt GPU. Ofc there was improvement at FPS from 5770 -> 660 PI but mainly cos i did overclock my 1055t.
