Hello all! Ive been mooching around the internet and managed to find two PC's that i might actually have space for when i come to buy a new pc in the summer! 

 

CYBERPOWER Revolution

CYBERPOWER Empire Elite

 

So my question is: Which one of them will run the game better?

The Empire elite with its faster CPU speed or the Revolution with its larger GPU RAM?

Ultimately the question is: Which system will run the Game at a high fps with high settings?

 

 

Many Thanks

 

Puffs

Almost certainly the intel cpued one ... although I have tried neither of them myself. WoT is very cpu intensive and the intel cpu delivers far more cpu power than the amd one

Surely if its CPU heavy then the 3.8 GHz would be better than a 3.4  GHz?

Clock frequency cannot be used as a measure of relative performance, as those two chips have completely different architecture https://en.wikipedia.../Megahertz_myth

 

Instead, to compare cpu power you should look up benchmarks, for example this one -> http://www.cpu-world...i3_i3-4130.html

or google for some yourself "i3-4130  vs AMD FX-4300"

I'm not a hardware nut and only took a quick look, but both those PCs seem overpriced to me.

Because notebooks are generally more expensive. I'm on a macbook, it's twice as expensive and offers half the performance, but the OP's computers are overpriced for desktop PCs IMO.

Indeed, the Intel based one seems to be about £100 too much. A little hard to estimate as the motherboard, HDD and RAM is not specified.

Also i3 for gaming, HAH!

 

edit: I forgot about the PSU so I'd say it isn't that bad as long as these are PCs built on demand by the store. I would rather not recommend buying prebuilt ones unless you can pick the part self. The stores tend to put part which does not sell good into them. Most people buying those wouldn't care for anything else than max HDD, max GHz, max GB and max gfxcardz. Lower quality PSUs and motherboards may be bundled which may or may not be that good. Please note that I am not telling you that the PSU will catch fire or anything, though a lower quality PSU may shorten the life expectancy of your hardware.

 

Moreover, the Intel one should run wot very well as it loves single core performance. This together with a decent graphicscard should run the game well. I have played it on a similar setup and it ran perfectly well.

Wow thanks for such an in depth comment!

I have never/will never buy a shop built PC as buying the components tends to work out much cheaper, I will add that unless you or someone you know have the technical skills to this then you are unfortunately stuck with buying overpriced low grade tech.
