It's a low power, low performance system. What do you plan on using it for?

If you already bought it, why bother asking? You should already know what it's capable (& not capable) of doing. Considering the weak CPU & poor integrated graphics, I'm surprised SIMS 3 runs on it.

I didn't buy it, I meant that is what she will use it for, I am thinking of buying it...I am sorry that I worded it wrong.

That's not a good machine. She may want to play more games later on and you'll be stuck with a costly upgrade. I would look at other machines. Check out some of the AMD builds. Some of them come with the hd 4200 built into the mobo and if that doesn't cut it, later on you could add a gpu like the hd 4650 or the hd 4670 for a few more bucks.

That sounds like a much better system for her. Should hold her over for a long time. Good Luck.

Looks like a system from CyberPower or iBuyPower?

A few tips:

- there's really no need to have two burners, one can do it all. Save the $21 for something else, like a better motherboard.
- there should be better motherboard choices available. The Geforce 7025/nForce 630a combo has been around for a while. You'd be better off with a board based on the AMD 785G/SB710 combo. When it comes to onboard video, the Radeon HD 4200 graphics is about as good as it gets.
- the GeForce GT 430 is definitely better than the onboard, but at $75, it's about $25 over what you would pay at newegg.com. Even so, there are better cards available in the $50 price range. The onboard graphics should be sufficient for everyday use, DVD playback & light gaming. If it's not up to your expectations, you can always upgrade at a later date.

If you dump the 2nd burner & video card, you'll have an extra $96 to play with. I suggest you use that for a better motherboard & a different power supply. Apevia cases may be OK but their power supplies are of poor quailty. The power supply is the backbone of the system, so make sure you choose a good one. If you have a link to where you'll be buying from, one of us can help you choose a better configuration.

this is where I am looking at, I am also looking at hp and dell sites. the problem is we only have $1000.00 limit, so I am trying to find her a great computer on that budget.. I know that isn't that much but that really is all I have....if anyone thinks they can help then I would be grateful, because I have no idea how to build a good computer.

Thanks so much

i bought a computer form them once. I wouldn't buy another. The build was good, but some of the components were as cheap as you could get. although they went by my specs, they used cheap parts. probably because there's not much profit in a build like that. $1000.00 is way more than you need to pay for a newer machine. I would stay within the 5 to 6 hundred dollar range. Dell is a good machine and they have decent tech support. Too bad you can't build one, you could save a decent amount of money.

Almost any computer you buy these days is a good machine. I would stay away from Emachines, but almost any other brand should be fairly reliable. i bought my wife a dell eight years ago and she's still using it daily. She only does web surfing and email. Almost any computer today will play Sims 3. We had no problems with the Dell, and all I did was upgrade the ram to 2 gigs. Shop around and see what's out there. They all come with Windows 7 and most have the 64 bit version with at least 4 gigs of ram. Good Luck.
