hello all,

I really do not know much about gpu, and have no idea, like what card would be good for what game. my need is what graphic card would be good enough for world of tank, cs ? not over-perform too much, but just enough to play it with max setting.

thank you !!!

Without knowing the rest of your system specs, it's hard to say, but Google the game benchmarks and see what different cards are getting and at what settings. Then you will have an idea of what card you should be looking at. Your CPU and power supply will have to support that card obviously, and it should be a good match for your monitor.

thank you BadActor.
What i will do is put the gpu at the first priority. as long as I figure out a suitable gpu, i will upgrade other parts to support it if currently not yet. So, you can feel free to give some advice on gpu. thanks again. i will check the game benchmark too.

thank you TchNeeeQ.
Is Radeon HD 7850 2g better than R7 250 (this is my current card)? or the opposite way?

Just taking a look at a few benchmarks, it looks like a GTX 950 would give you 50 to 60 FPS in WOT at high/ultra settings and quite a few more than that in CS:GO. On a 1080p/60 hz monitor, this would make for some good gaming. If you have a good dual or quad core and a decent 400+watt PSU with a 6 pin PCIe connector, you would probably be able to use it. What are your system specs?

750 Ti is a safe bet for those games at max settings. It slots into nearly any system, without needing a very good power supply.
Presumably you already have a CPU that can handle those games?
Might be worth checking that because if your CPU is too weak or you don't have enough RAM then a graphics card will not help you.

However if you let us know what CPU and power supply you have we can recommend slightly more powerful cards if you want one.

to BadActor and Justin,

thank you for all your help.
like i said, i can definitely upgrade my other parts if needed. so, this will not be a issue.

my current specs:
cpu-fx8320 8-core 3.5g
ram-8g (need a 16g ???)
psu-cossair rm750w (can upgrade if needed)

Is 750ti lower ended than 950?? I see the price is actually close for these two.

Yes, the 950 is a much better performing part than a 750 Ti.

Also consider if you still want to keep the same graphics card in three years time.
It might be worth going up to a 4GB GTX 960 or R9 380 (depending on which is cheaper) so you can still enjoy medium and high settings in more demanding games over the next couple of years.

But if you don't think you will play anything more demanding than CS:GO and World of Tanks in the next two years then you will be fine with a 950.

To be honest, I wouldn't pair a FX 8320 with any graphics card more powerful than an R9 380X as the CPU will bottleneck your performance before you reach the maximum potential of a GTX 970 or R9 390.
