Having problems with your Sony VAIO RB30C (VGCRB30) PC Desktop ?

Will the ''Sims 3'' work on this computer...?

\015 I've had it since 05-06, and I'm worried that the game won't work once I get it. My Sims 2 games with expansion packs work fine though...Will it be slow? Or will it not function at all?\015

Answers :

It should be OK, your system shipped with P4 3ghz processor, so thet should suffice, what you may need is a high end video card and at least 1 or 2 gb memory. I dont reccomend using the onboard video.
You could probably run the game on high settings with under 150.00 in upgrades. \015\012
\015\012I would reccomend a Nvidia 9600 GT (http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010380048%204027%20106792522&name=GeForce%209%20series)\015\012
\015\012For Ram I would reccomend using the crucial.com memory scanner and ordering(2gb) memory through them. \015\012
\015\012Upgrading RAM will give you a huge increase in performance not only for games, but for your all around computer usage  and is without a doubt worth every penny!

I bought a new copy of the game and tried to install that, it installed but it keeps crashing very quickly into it. EA says it's
