Sorry I left out something and I couldn't find a way to edit my last post so let me just add.
I mentioned needing 4 gigs of RAM. What I meant was I wanted at least 2 gigs of RAM with the ability to install up to 4 gigs.
Hi I'm looking for advice on a PC for playing Sims 3. I have a budget of up to $700.00 I might be able to squeeze out a little more but not much.
I've found some pcs around that price that seem good, but when It comes to graphics cards they just aren't good enough.
What I'd like to do is get a good system. Something that has a dual core processor, 4 gigs of RAM, a decent size hard drive(this is the least important sine I can later get an external hard drive and add more space)
and I want a really good card. Something that I won't have problems with at high settings.
Of course I don't know if this is possible at my budget. But I thought maybe I can get a good fast computer that is under 700.00 and then later buy and install a better card myself.
Does anyone have any advice on systems that are best for doing this.
ALso I know the SIms 3 specs, but they just but that's just the minimal requirements to play the game. My current computer meets the specs and plays it.. but not well. Plus when you add custom content and expansion packs you're gonna need more. So, I've asked around and the things I stated, the dual core, 4 gigs of memory, have been suggested by a lot of people as necessary.
