I just bought the Sims 2 for PC and was very excited about playing it. When i got home I started reading the requirements.
* 800 MHz processor
* 256 MB RAM
* Windows(R) XP, Windows ME, Windows 98 or Windows 2000 Operating System.
* At least 3.5 GB of hard drive space
* A T&L-capable video card with at least 32 MB of video RAM.
I have a Pentium Processor 4, 700something RAM... I forget.. Windows XP, 160GB drive...... and I think whats making my game EXTREMLY slow is the video card... I assume you believe thats what it is also. It has to be... Common sense... I don't think i have a good graphic card anyways.... So my question is....
Can I still add a Graphics Card to my Computer even if it has a Graphic card already integrated into the motherboard?

he said Pentium 4 processor, 700 or something ram
any pentium4 processor is enough to run sims 2; in addition he has 768mb ram, not a 700mhz or so P4
So its my graphics card ****ing my game up huh? I thinkin about just buying the best and newest asus graphic cards out there.... Will any model work with my comp? or does it have to be same brand as my motherboard.
Dont buy the best card out there because you CPU will be bottleneckng it. Get like 6600 gt, 9800 pro, x800 pro... something like that. Like I said i can sell you my 9800 pro for 90-100. It will run sims real well.
