SSD gives a massive performance boost in WOT, it will help with any setup and especially with a bad one if you ask me, and they are cheap aswell.

EDIT: If you have an SSD then you are already at a good starting point. Just remember to install WOT on that SSD.

Now the GPUs...
For the price of that R7 250X, you can get a used HD7950 or maybe even a HD7970 which would be a LOT better.
Atleast in Finland the 250X goes for about 100-110€ new, same price as used HD7950 are.

You should really look at buying a used GPU instead of that crap as new.

From my understanding World of Tanks utilizes only one core, and overclocking the CPU, or getting a faster CPU has more benefits then any other upgrade. I have yet to see from any benchmark that SSD's offer any boost in framerate for any game. With their current system, a dedicated GPU will probably help, but the biggest gains would be from a decent CPU, not an SSD. At least that has been what I have observed.

Wow this game has gotten burning. I'm only playing it right now because I don't have access to my desktop and my 2010 laptop can't play fc4...

I love either hull down or side scraping these noobs at tier 8 with my sti. I'm averaging like 2k dmg blocked with my sti. Not as much blocked as I'd like but it still gets the job done. Players tend to spam gold once they realize they have no chance at penning me...

I'm definitely interested in the test server for 9.14. It will definitely make the game more interesting now.

Indeed WoT still runs on the BigWorld engine, so single thread. BigWorld 2 is multi thread, but WG still haven't moved onto it yet. Single thread grunt is what you need above all else in WoT these days.
Saying that thoiugh, an SSD makes a huge difference to performance. I would highly recommend having your OS and World of Tanks on an SSD.

As for GPU, a second hand previous generation card will offer much better performance than a 250x. A 7950 would be a fine choice, as would getting a flagship card from a generation earlier. WoT is not very advanced and doesn't make use of modern GPU features. I used to play it on an Eyefinity setup of three monitors at 1366x768 each using an old 5870.

I think I missed something within the last year or two when I last looked at SSD's improving anything gamewise that didn't improve loading times.
post #5816 of 6617
An SSD does one thing and it does it well, it transfers stored data to memory, if you are see a lot of stuttering in game due to game being loaded to the page file then an SSD will help.

WOT was being played at my house on a very old PC @ med. settings, PC stats, CPU E8400 OCed to 3.6ghz., 4 gig of DDR2-1066,
GPU 8800GTS-512, O/S WinXP 32 bit installed on an SSD, the game ran fine but it did take a while to load maps.

I said "was" because all the old socket 775 PC's at my house (3 of them) have been upgraded to socket 1150 and Win10 with GTX 470's (I had them lying around)

Those claiming it doesn't do anything for gaming are sort of right, for most games atleast. WOT is not one of them and here is the proof for you http://ftr.wot-news.com/2014/05/28/comparison-of-hdd-and-ssd-for-world-of-tanks/

You are wrong. It gives a massive boost over standard HDD to your FPS _AND_ it stops all the stuttering/freezes when someone is spotted etc.

Wow. Well, I guess I need to upgrade.
post #5819 of 6617
for my budget the only options are:
r7 240 2gb ddr3
r7 240 4gb ddr3 lol
r7 250 OC 2GB ddr3
r7 250 1GB gddr5
r7 250x 2GB gddr5
to play on minimum in improved graphs at least .
my fear is the bottleneck and not wasting money on graphics card that the processor does not take advantage in world of tanks .
this is the only game i play that need graphics card .
I play games occasionally and very light games .

That was a good read Stige, seems WOT loves to keep files loaded on the drive and in page file instead of memory, I wonder what difference we would have seen in the benchmark had he used faster ram.

PS.
That is how you make a point, back it up with empirical evidence.
