Hi,
Recently I've been thinking of purchasing a new comp, specifically for gaming with a budget of 500-600.
The one that I'm interested in has these specs:

-Intel® Core™ i3-4000M processor
-4 GB of RAM
-1 TB hard drive
-NVIDIA® GeForce® GT720M graphics card runs off 1 GB of dedicated memory
-17.3" Laptop
-Windows 8
-Dolby® Advanced Audio

Would this setup give me a decent frame rate? I've looked into it and at medium settings I should get a constant 20-30?
Not entirely sure though, your input would be greatly appreciated :)

Are you planning to get laptop, because obviously if you get a PC you will get better performance for price, and what is your budget?
EDIT: I am blind, that machine can run wot as far as I know but not sure what kind of FPS you will get. If you can afford a little more for GFX, extra performance is always welcome.

It seems to be a laptop...so my advice is not to go for the i3 but an i5 minimum.
And double the amount of memory.
Try to install an SSD, it helps a lot.

I'm playing with a laptop as well, ASUS K55VD i7, 8Gb, SSD (not stock hdd), nvidia 610M 2Gb (not the best).
And getting 50-60 fps with some personal settings + wot tweaker + scope shadow remover.

recently i bought at local electro dealer.

ACER Notebook V5-572G-53338G50aii
Intel Core i5-3337U Prozessor
NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M - 4GB
8 GB RAM
500 GB HDD
Windows 8 64-Bit
it costed "only" 499€ and wot runs with 30-50fps on 1366x768, most graphic settings high some few on medium.
sometimes however it freezes  - lag? or sth different? don't know started to bugger  with 8.8.
it has no optical drive but that is ok for me

What is more ridicoulus regarding wot performance - recently i tried worldof warplanes - it runs with 60-120fps .....

Hmm... I got a new Laptop:

Prozessor Mobile - Intel Core i5-4200M 2x 2.5 GHz
K56 3072 MB NVIDIA Geforce GTX 770M
8192MB DDR3 1600Mhz (1x 8192MB)
HDD 1000 GB, 5400upm

Running on Windows 7 Home Premium

I play WoT on maximum settings and 1920x1080 have no problems whatsoever. (Gotta check my FPS, dunno by heart, I think it was roughly 50-60)

But it didn't cost 600€... it was roughly the double that price... I think as a desktop you could get that setup for maybe 900 bucks?

Hopefully a tech expert can help as I am fairly clueless, but as WoT is dx9 only, isn't the best set up probably a 4800HD or similar?

WOT is very CPU demanding, no idea why.

Where other games will run flawlessly @ 100fps, WOT just struggles.

Wot is CPU demanding because wot game engine only uses 1 core. For example AMD CPUs will struggle more because they have worse single core performance compared to intel i5-i7.
