Not sure if I should go with 1070 or an AMD offering.
WoT and WoWS were both built with Russian potato PCs in mind. If you're building a pc primarily for just those titles, an i3/i5 with a 760-780 or 960-970 will be MORE than enough to run it maxxed out.

Definitely don't get an i7, because wot and wows can't make use of the extra cores.

Yeah, I'd agree with this recommendation. An i7 is overkill if this game is literally ALL they're gonna play on it. I have a potato AMD FX CPU and I'm able to run it at maxed out settings with the Standard Definition textures. Only reason I can't run HD is because of the 4GB of RAM, stutters too much from the hard drive hitching if I switch to HD. An i5 will handle WoT completely maxed out with the HD textures just fine.

Overclocking the cpu does a good job of pushing out more frames. I am still rocking an ivy i7 with no plans of upgrading even though I play games like battlefield. Last I heard this game uses one core for the gameplay, and another for sound.

Harddrive hasn't affected WOW performance for a while now and 4GB should be enough any time of the day. Only the bad AMD CPU that is holding you back really.

And with the addition of DX11, WOT runs like wonders on any machine compared to how it was.

Actually, they can. I just tested running latest WoT (9.15.0.1) on quadcore Xeon and all cores are running at around 75% workload. With my graphics setup (2x5830), it looks like three cores should be sufficient. Nothing else was running on the test machine.

The multicore support was added recently, and seems to work pretty well.

I'm pretty impressed that WOT is still going.

Why? It's loaded with players and has been for a long while, there is no end in sight.

Feel like 2 things have happened to the game recently...

Well 3 now...

1. "Free" rental tanks are crap...like worst ever....
2. More sky cancer than ever...makes playing slow tanks nearly impossible...
3. Seems like there's been a nerf to credits made with non-premium...
