I'm wanting to buy a PC that will be able to run Sims 3 (plus all EP and SPs) in better quality than I'm currently getting. I've got a laptop with a Nvidia GeForce 1.5GB graphics card (I want to say it's a 9800, but I can't remember for sure off the top of my head) 4GB Ram, and a 2.4Ghz processer. It goes alright with Sims on low settings, but the cooling system is awful and my CPU goes through the roof!
I'm browsing the internet and found a PC that's really well priced, but I know very, very little about the graphics card......Can anyone tell me what this system would be like performance wise when running Sims 3?
