  1. Hey guys, i was wondering if anyone could help?

    I have recently bought the sims 2 after ages of saving up but have been doubting whether it would play on my family PC. The specs of my machine at the moment are:
    AMD Athlon 64 Processor (3400+)
    2.40 GHz
    992 MB of RAM
    Integrated Mirage 2 graphic engine

    If the game would not run on my pc could anyone reccomend a PC that is available on the market, which isn't too expensive (as I have a students budget!) that would run it well?

    p.s. i am from the UK

    That PC should run Sims 2 no problem.

    Even the cheapest PC you buy will have no problem.

    Go here:

    http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srtest

    You have to download the ActiveX from the site for the test to work.

    Run a test for Sims 2

    If you get recommended you system is awesome!

    If you get a minimum pass then upgrade your system to the stuff it needs ( videocard, RAM or something else like that )

    If you fail do the same for the minimum pass results

    Hope I helped
