Specs: Windows Vista , AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core
I am shopping for a computer and I came along one that I think will work. But I need some info before I make a decision.
So here are some main important requirements for the Sims 3:

(processor)2.4 GHz P4 processor or equivalent.
(Graphics card or video) 128 mb video card w/support for pixel shadder 2.0

Now, the pc that I think will be fine has:

(processor) AMD Athlon (TM) X2 Dual-Core Processor for Notebook PCs QL-62 (2.0 GHz)
(Graphics card) 512MB ATI Raedon (TM)HD3650 Graphics

The computer I want to get is HP Dv5z series. I am able to customize this series from the website. Is this graphics card a stand alone one? Any suggestion will be greatly appericated.

Thank You.

Pretty good video card...

Future proof laptop? No such thing in my opinion. It does look like a pretty good deal though with 3Gb memory for around $800US.
