Most definately! You can get some pretty good 128mb cards for less than a hundred.

ya get some 128MB card, as now a days 64MB + cards are coming built-in, why are you going for mare 64MB, at least keep Vga Memory 25% of System memory, that makes it 128MB as if you'll install 512MB system RAM

ok so you got 256mb of RAM and want to upgrade to a 32mb PCI video card and you basically want to get another 256mb of RAM and get a 64mb PCI card? Talking minimal difference compared to the amount of money you're spending. It's not even worth it, but if you're gonna stick with it you might as well look into getting a 128mb card. That'd make a better difference.

BTW: I assume this is the last game you ever intend to play or something? Sims2 might not have been demanding as you thought, but you're straining to be able to play that. In 4 months you won't be able to play anything.
