I am very sorry if this has been asked before, as so many pages on this thread, too many to go through. I am looking to add a graphics card, especially with the new HD stuff and Havok coming online soonish.
Current build.

When I built my machine I was on a very strict budget, therefore the a10 5800 cpu/gpu combo. med settings gets me around 35 fps, but wanting more with the HD stuff coming out. So I have some questions.

Is there a lot of difference between 1, 2 and 3 GB video card to play WOT?
Is there a big difference between 9000 MHZ and 1.5 GHZ?

I really do not want to spend 250 bucks on a video card, if I can get one that will perform pretty well for 150.
I do not need to run on max settings, but high would be nice.
I do not need over 60 fps, for the obvious reason.
My current screen resolution is 1600x900 half due to fps, half due to the fact it bugs me to wear my contacts after a long day, and do not have the eyes of a 21 year old anymore. frown.gif
These are just kinda a starting point. Any other suggestions with facts would be much appreciated. And thanks in advance.
GeForce GTX 660-Do not really want to spend that much for a card, but probably would, if others are not powerful enough to get the job done. Would I end up with a bottleneck?

Radeon HD 7770-Too little?

http://pcpartpicker....card-hd77702gd5

Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition-Too lil, too much?

http://pcpartpicker....card-100354oc2l

Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition-Too cheap?

http://pcpartpicker....card-hd77701gd5

i do not play any other game, so not worried about anything else, well, til Warships comes out that is.

As I am a veteran of WOT will give all some solid advice, get OMC mod installer, and look through those mods, it will only enhance your game. Any questions which mods, simply pm me here.


I get around 35 fps @ 1680x1050 with a x3363 running at 3.8Ghz, 5770 @ 920/1300.

I think a 7790 will be enough at your resolution. If you can spare more, maybe a r7 265.

I bet ace tanker for the IS4 or OBJ140 is gonna be well over 6k dmg per game...probably no ammo left in both tanks...lol

True. Made around 6-6,5k dmg and topgun, high caliber anything in my obj. 140 but still only class 1 badge. You really need to do smth special with it.
Even with 7k dmg in my IS-7 I didnt get ace tanker.

I typically sit back and snipe, then end up pushing to far after a few tanks are taken out and I get owned....oh well...its a learning process...

Its coming...

True that. This game is pretty hard to master and will take some battles to be good at driving a specific tank.

Tip of the day:
Don't rush out and die, you wont win games then ;D



Ohh nice. Posted it on my clan website biggrin.gif

Thanks for your reply. I think I am going to go with an Gigabyte GTX 660 $190. Thinking it is going to give me the best bang for my buck. Guess did forget that i do overclock my A10 5800 to 4.5MHz

This game loves strong cores so it is better suited for Intel CPUs.

While wOT is taxing on CPU, it is also just as dependent on GPU. Found the only benchmarks for WOT.

So please do not think that to have a rocking cpu is the only way to get fps to 60, as it clearly does not.

Well, I didn't say that it doesn't love a good GPU but, IMO, it benefits from a strong CPU more than other games.

Its single core... My gtx670 is like 60% utilization in the game at max settings... And I still get dips own to 20-30fps when my GPU is being only 50% usage...its all single core CPU performance..?I can't even keep up with my i5-2500k at 4.5ghz...

I did 7200 in my 215b once and that wasnt good enough for Ace, I only have Ace in ONE Tier X tank (My E100)
