Hey guys, im not a big expert in computers, hardware or software so i considered its best to ask others for some help.

So i have a 500 euro budget to buy a new central unit(tower) or what ever its called, mainly to play WoT, watch HD movies and surf the Internet and so on.

Do remember that im not inclined in spending all of my money, i am looking for a cheaper option.

Ok, so here are the options im looking at , what do you guys recommend?

 

1) IT MYRIA LIVE V34, Intel Core i3-4160 3.6GHz, 6GB, 1TB, nVIDIA GeForce GT 730 2GB DDR3, Linux       worth 350 Euros

2) IT MYRIA Live V30, Intel Core i3-4150 3.5GHz, 4GB, 1TB, nVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB GDDR5, Free Dos     worth 375 euros

3) IT MYRIA XDrive V14, Intel® Core™ i5-4460 pana la 3.4GHz, 4GB, 1TB, nVIDIA GeForce GT 740 2GB DDR3, Linux      worth 425 euros

4) Gaming Warlock v5, Intel i3 4170, 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, R7 370 OC WindForce 2X 2GB GDDR5, Wi-Fi  worth  470 euros

 

So, which one should i buy? cheapest the most expensive or ....., do remember i wanna play wot at decen or good quality

Go for number 2, good single core performance and a decent GPU, you can always add an extra stick of ram to it so it is 8gb instead of 4gb

Probably no.2 but I'd always recommend to build your own, especially over 200-ish euros. You can never guarantee good motherboards, airflow, and especially power supplies with pre-builts. 99% of the time if someone brings a pre-built to me to fix, it's had a blown power supply.

Never buy those pre-build PC ...  they always use some low-end parts  that will make future upgrades more expensive or impossible  ... like a low end motherboard, bad PSU (power supply), low DDR, low Graphic card. 

Stay on  Intel CPU + Nvidia  Video card.  Games like WoT,  AW,  WT  are better optimized for  Intel + Nvidia .... 

And if you want to play WoT  don't  buy "GT" series graphics card ....  minimum should be GTX.   ( that is why both people above went for the pc Nr. 2  ;)

 

Try to find in your country a shop or online shop  that gives you assembly.  [ in my country is like 10 euro  or even free if you buy some expensive stuff, depends from shop to shop ]

Maybe like that you will be able  to pick the best parts for money.... 

 

But from those 4 options  Nr 2.  is best choice. 

[ Nr 3. only if you plan to change the Video Card  to a GTX 750 in near future and of course if the PSU is good enough ]

If you are only going to play WoT then get an i3, if you're going to play a lot of other games and stuff and you can afford it, get an i5.

GTX 750Ti is a good a cheap card and should be more than enough for wot I guess, but once you start looking at the higher price range like the GTX 960/970/980. Don't go for those, their AMD counterparts are much better. R9 380(x) > 960 and the R9 390(x) > 970/980. But I'm guessing you want to keep the costs down so get a 750Ti
