    I will play like world of tanks on it and maybe download a film
  3. I havent seen or played world of tanks so I did a search for benchmarks and found this page

    Its not directly relevant because they are testing the lower powered mobile versions of graphics chips but it should give you some insights

    The problem with your build for gaming is the quite weak graphics card . Gaming , at higher detail settings , is much more dependent on the graphics card than the processor .
    You either have to spend more , or compromise on processor power to afford a more powerful graphics card

    Which graphic card do you think i should buy?
  5. That depends entirely on how much money you have .

    The Radeon 7850 plays most games well at 1080p resolution

    The 7870 is better

    the 7970 does very well
