Sure I will post in a few. But the little that you see, do I need to upgrade on anything?

Yes...I did get it working. It was a compatibility issue with Windows XP I believe....and I dont have that on this computer anymore.


Could you tell me with the diag that I posted if Sims 4 will run on this computer?

 

Thank you

It fulfills the minimum requirements, yes but I don't know how it's going to be when you start adding Expansions.

 

Also, Sims 3 also had a minimum requirement of 2 GB of RAM and it needed way more so at this point, there's no way of telling. I do believe that CAS could be an indication on how it runs. It works pretty well on my very old machine and if it works well on yours, you should be fine. I can't give you any guarantees though.

 

If you buy Sims 4 on Origin though, you have a 24 hours trial period. If it doesn't work, you can give it back within that timeframe
