Yo, what's up? I'm in the process of planning significant upgrades to my system this spring, one of which would be to jump from 1080p to 1440p. My pc isn't solely for WoT, I do play a bunch of other games as well, but WoT tends to be my most played game so feedback would be very much appreciated from everyone who actually play WoT at 1440p. What GPU are you using and what kind of framerates are you getting? I'm not excluding either green or red team and will eventually go with whichever will give me a better overall price/performance package.

I'm using a gtx 970 and i have a fps between 70 and 100. Depends on the maps.

cpu is an i7 2600k oc @ 4.3 ghz.

If you have a decent enough graphics card it won't be the limiting facor for Wot at 1440p. Overclocking your CPU will boost the performance in Wot quite a lot.

best gpu for it's price is the GTX 970, or you could use Intel HD Graphics like me ;-;

Make sure the graphic card CAN output that resolution ... i think you need at least hdmi 1.3b or something like that. Previous versions don't have enough bandwidth. You could use display port or dual DVI, too.

 

I can't help more than that, TBH even on a 120" screen, 1080p + FSAA really is enough for me.

Wait till sept!!!

Brand new amd +nvidia, intel cpu all coming out with new family.

970 is v.good gpu, but was released dec2014

Intel i7 4790 4ghz, is best cpu for single thread results

10%better than 6770 4ghz

+20% better than 3rd best cpu.

 

10x multi cores, not much good in wot.

Most games use 4 threads, so higher core speed counts more than number of cores.

If I only had the patience.. :rolleyes: I already have an i5-4690K which is the best of the i5-line of CPUs so unless I stumble upon a great deal on a used 4790K I'm not going to upgrade that for a while, and for the GPU+monitor I pretty much have two options at the moment, either go for a 1440p/144Hz Freesync monitor and an R9 390 or 390X OR settle for a 1440p/60Hz screen and dump the circa 100-150€ I'll save on the monitor and go for a GTX980.

Seen a few nice ips monitors, with 144hz +rates near as damn it, as low as a tn screen.

Will have to change monitors myself, to be able to actualy benefit from higher fps, when my new comps built

 

Idealy id like a top rate gaming ips monitor,

But will probably get a tn one, to save a few hundred.

Just have to identify, which monitor

Well I went and bought the monitor and holy Jesus tanks have never looked so fine!:izmena: I went for the Asus PB258Q which is a 25" 1440p 60Hz IPS panel. Had to do some tuning stuff to get Chrome and Spotify to look the part, what with a much higher pixel density compared to 24" 1080p, but it's now beginning to look mighty decent! 

 

The higher resolution actually put my GPU under more stress than I'd hoped, I actually had to dial down my clock speeds because the GPU was hitting 85 degrees celcius with 60% fan speed which was loud as all hell, but I managed to set it so that it runs under 80C with under 50% fan speed which is a big enough improvement in acoustics that I'll gladly take the ~5fps hit I took. Had to dial the advanced settings all one notch below maximum also, but the resolution just makes everything still look WAY better than before! And this current GPU is a temporary one, I will be going for a better one once I have the moneys for it.

Hello,

I might too upgrade to a 1440p monitor, as I play mostly on world of tanks I didn't need a gtx1080 so I bought a gtx 1050ti (which runs overclocked at 1900mHz and 65°C, at load), should I be worried to get under 50 fps (1440p)? Should I also wait for another time to upgrade to 4K when the next line of gpu's is coming out(+-2018)?

 

Greetings,

starwarser007

If you want to play at 1440p a GTX 1050Ti won't be good enough, you want to have at least a GTX 1060 or RX480, even better would be GTX 1070
