So here's the specs for the sims 2
If you have a non-T&L capable video card (an Intel Extreme Graphics or a Radeon 7000/VE Series) then you need at least:
2.0 GHz processor or better
256 MB RAM if Windows XP, Windows ME, Windows 98, or Windows 2000
At least 3.5 GB of hard drive space

okay now in order for me to Run The Sims 2 to WELL not EXCELLECENT just WELL OR EVEN SMOOTH...what else do I need to do:

So far I am doing the following

1. Upgrading to 9600 pro
2. Getting more memory/ ram (whatever you wanna call it) 256 stick

Now if your going to recomned me something please don't give me some crazy gamig thing just give me a good inexpensive one also....
i didn't tell you but this is THE ONE game I will play on my computer
so if that makes a differnce before you tell me something thank you.

A friend checked it for me.

What size of Hard Drive does he have, and you'll probably need to upgrade to a 1.5 Ghz processor or better, but by doing that you' might need a new motherboard if the one you have isnt capable of going that high., Mega could you ask him to download that and post the log?
