Hi there,

 

Since my desktop decided to die on me this week im looking at building up a new one with WoT as main goal.

Had my eye on the g3258 intel since i don't need a 8-core to play WoT and it can overclock to a very strong 4+ ghz.

 

This would give me more room to get a good gpu.

Would combine it with 8gb of 1866mhz ram and a 500gb velociraptor from my old system,

Any idea on what gpu i would need to run max sets and a decent 60+ fps?

 

thanks in advance!

You do realise that you could have uber GPU and still have 50fps due to epic optimisation?
Build PC for AW.

I'm not to worried about that since i have built many systems in the past, only thing i need to figure out is what gpu can handle max. settings, i think there is no need to invest in a 4 to 8 core processor since WoT doesn't really utilize multi-core, and if so i could always upgrade to other processor when time comes. On the other hand i don't want to spend 400 euros on a gpu when a 150 euro one can handle max as well, don't like throwing money down the drain ;P

WoT can have fake multicore runing - gives 5-10FPS.

Chips ok, next gen intel chips are out shortly (due last month but not quite there yet), may mean a drop in price but a 3rd gen chip would be more than sufficient and the new nvidia 960's are out and they are very well priced.

Mehh, with epic WoT optimization, I would go for one of the top models on the new nVidia range... 

Pretty much ensures you can run both it and any other game on max as well...

 

I would take two of them if I were you, if you can afford it...

I'm using GTX 760 and i5-4460 @ 3.2GHz and i can run WoT on max settings, but with obviously annoying things turned off, like extra effects in sniper mode and grass.

Weird, my GTX670 can't run it on full graphics... and cpu is stronk as well, AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black edtition overclocked from 3.4 to 3.9 GHz. 

And I can only run on high... cpu is kind of old, but it's still running at 3.9 GHz...

 

+ WoT installed on SSD... and 8 GB of ram (soon upgrading to 16 GB)

There are a lot of differences between different brands of cards. if you have a reference 670 with reference clock speeds my card will blast it's [edited]any day. Reference gpu clock speed for the GTX670 is 915MHz, reference 760 gets 980MHz, and my MSI Gaming version automatically boosts up to 1320MHz and stays there no problem. 

 

I also have a GTX 760 paired with an i5-4690K oc'd to 3.9GHz (lame, I know but that's what my mobo's built-in oc genie gave me and I'm too lazy to do it myself) and I'm running pretty much max settings and getting 55-65 fps on average and no discernible fps drops or stutters. If you're playing on a 1080p monitor go for a card with 2 or 3 gigs of vram, no more is needed for WoT.

My old Nvidia 580GTX would run WoT on full graphics, frame rate would be around 40ish but my new 980 doesnt even flinch on max settings.

Also cpu cores can have an effect, intel are more powerful core on core, especially the 4th gen over AMD's offering (even clocked).

Just make sure it is an Intel i5 processor (or stronger).

 

Also that it is an Nvidia Graphics card.

 

You should be all good then.

Maybe im not well informed, but WoT doesnt support multi-core right?

So looking at the g3258 clocked at a nice 4.5ghz would at this moment put aside a extra 150,- for a gpu.

Since being socket 1150 i can always upgrade to a i5 later on when i have saved up a little.

Going cheaper cpu and more expensive gpu at the moment seems to make the most sence to me.

 

Motherboard will be "future proof" for Sli etc. cuz i like upgrading piece by piece.

Any advice on GPU at range of 200-300 euro?

You can get a new GTX 960 card for less than 300€ which should be good enough.

Ok, been looking around a bit...

Will be getting a z97 MB with the g3258 to start with.

Looking at the GPU seeing 3 cards verry close to eachother pricewise...

 

gtx 960, 280x and 290 4gb (not looking at the 285, cuz it's an inbetween card)

 

Any suggestions? Looks like a 290 4gb would be the best one of the lot, but maybe someone has other ideas about this.

It's been said by WG that WoT runs best on Intel & Nvidia based systems, so if you're building a new PC specifically for WoT i would strongly recommend Intel & Nvidia based system.

Mine is boosted to 1101 MHz... still has 2 GB of vram.

OK,

 

All plans are of the table ;)

Installed WoT on my htpc for the time being, it's equiped with the a6-7400k, and to my amazement it runs the game verry well, medium settings without advanced brings around 50-60 fps...

So i can start my build part by part now, no rushing as i was intending to.

Thanks for advice so far!

Pentium is a great little chip, but it's not really for gaming. It will also bottleneck any half decent graphics card. It's mainly used for HTPC and general internet surfing PCs because of its two quick cores and low price/TDP. It will struggle with most games. I've gone for an i3-4160, which gets all of the advantages of the Pentium (minus overclocking of course) but will not bottleneck most graphics cards and also has hyper threading for when you're not playing games, generally a much more capable chip. Cooler is a lot quieter than stock Intel cooler, cools more efficiently, and just looks better as well. It's basically silent, and all for less than £10. 

 

Motherboard is the ASRock Z97M Pro4, lots of features, Z97 chipset, etc. Good overclocking chops if you want to get an i5-4690K in the future. Also 6 phase power design, means protection to vital components even if something awful happens to the PSU. Talking of the PSU it's a high quality product made by Seasonic. Extremely reliable, great voltage regulation. Nothing wrong with it, IMO.

 

Twin Frozr R9 280. Best budget card out there right now. With the ever closer release of the R9 300 series, the price has dropped like a stone. Awesome card, even awesomer cooler. Will max out WoT with your i3 easy.

 

Kingston Fury Series 1866 RAM, best on the market. Cheap, fast, and from a reliable brand.

 

Fast, 1TB HDD. No need for anything more.

 

Case is amazing. Tiny case with great airflow, great features and even proper cable management. Also I threw in two blue fans to stick in the front of your case and look awesome.

 

Woody

Thanks woody on that pick, some items are not needed since i have a good coolermaster case and a 750w psu, also a 500gb velociraptor HD which will be plenty for me to do some gaming etc. (since i have the htpc for streaming, movies, etc.)

Same goes for fans and optical drive, but since i found out my htpc can run WoT better then i expected i can really start building part by part.

First on the list will be the RAM which i can use in the htpc while picking out other parts.

Might wait a month or so on picking my videocard since there are some new products releasing soon. 

So biggest issue will be a cpu and mb for now, mb first so if i get tired of running WoT on my htpc i can still get the g3258 if i5 cash is not there yet. ;)

8GBs of RAM at least (DDR3) quad core processor 3,5ghz and above plus make sure it is overclockable GTX 550 TI Nvidia graphics card and above for high-ultra-max'ed out settings (world of tanks is unoptimised so don't expect great FPS rates compared to other games) 2TB of storage (why not) windows7 (stronk OS) external hard drive 1 TB (for dem dodgy things).

 

 

hope this helps
