Hello i am about to buy a new PC and want to know if it will be able to run WoT.

 

 

 

System specs:

 

AMD A10-6800K Quad Core 4.1 GHz 

With Radeon HD 8670D Graphics

4GB of DDR3 Ram (upgrading to 8GB)

500GB SATA Hard Drive

500W power supply

And this is the motherboard: MSI FM2-A55M-E33 uATX Motherboard (Full specifications of this board can be found here  http://uk.msi.com/pr...ml#/?div=Detail

 

 

 

 I recognise will probably have to upgrade the graphics card so which ones would you suggest? 

The slot on the motherboard is Px16

Well here is a video of a guy using the more powerful AMD A10 7850K to play WOT on low settings and he gets about 30fps. 

 

 

Edit: You seem to be buying an off the shelf unit? 

I'd avoid that if you can and no offence but that board (like most MSI) is absolute junk.

Here is a build I recently did and I'm running high settings and getting well over 50fps all the time.

Get a processor with duo core, WoT doesent work well with quads.
I bought new pc for 144.67 Euro, and wot runs on 40 fps average on lowest settings.
There's the Pc, sorry for unfamiliar language link, i ordered it in my country.

What do you base that ridiculous generalisation on? 

I'm currently running in high settings, at 1080p on a 6 core CPU and achieving 50 to 90fps? 

I was previously running on a Q6600 quad core and never had any issues? Nor do any of my mates who use Quad core Intel or AMD hardware?

Just saying that the WoT does not support multicore. You probably have alot of memory and a good video card too.
If i could, i would've bought single core CPU just for WoT gaming purposes, sadly almost no one manufactures them anymore.

No??

You said "WoT doesent work well with quads". 

A dual core is a multi core?

Okay, I'm correcting myself, since you missunderstood me, WoT doesen't work well with multicores. Logically thinking the less cores - the better it is, that's why i suggested duo core. It has only 2 cores, but one core can take more pressure than a core from 4 core processor.

Oh please stop for goodness sake? 

You have no computing knowledge whatsoever and really shouldn't be cluttering up a thread where a person needs proper advice and help from people who know what they are talking about.

Would you please enlighten me then? I'm willing to know more. As i said i was only thinking logically. WoT already runs very smooth on 30 fps, i don't see the point on overpaying.

 I am sorry to say that You are wrong the 7850K has a worse Integrated graphics card  (evidence) 

Integrated GPU Radeon HD 7850K 

 Thats the 7850K's

 

The 6800K has a 

Integrated GPU Radeon HD 8670D

 

The 7850K has a 3.7GHz speed while the 6800K has a 4.1GHz With a boost of 4.3GHz

 Not only this, the youtube video you showed me says in the description that he/she reached an average of 76fps not 30fps

And when i searched for a video of a WoT player with an AMD 6800K playing WoT  (with graphics im very happy with, at a 1920xwhatever resolution) and he too reached 60-70 fps regularily

You are making the schoolboy error of concentrating on clock speeds (it's not 1998 anymore?).

The 7850k is a superior chip.

 

7850k - 28nms VS 6800k - 32nms 

7850k has more L1 Cache

7850k - GPU has 512 shader cores VS 6800k - 384 shader cores

 

7850k - Passmark 5621

6800k - Passmark 4742

 

7850k - PcMark 4057

6800k - PcMark 3419

 

7850k - HSA decoding test 4.9 seconds

6800k - HSA Decoding test 12.1 seconds

 

In 3DMark 11, the A10-7850K was 48-percent faster than the older AMD A10 6800K.

 

In Batman: Arkham City, run at 1,920-by-1,080 with DX11 enabled and medium details, the A10-7850K turned in a score of 40 frames per second (fps) compared with 33fps for the AMD A10-6800K.

 

But you are buying a new PC and came here for people to tell you it's a good choice. You don't want to hear any negatives. 

If you are happy to play games on a brand new PC with Super Nintendo graphics... go right ahead.
