Sims 4 System Requirements

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Hi all,

I don't understand if my system is good enough for the Sims 4 and I need help understanding. I have tried using the site where you can scan your computer and see if it will run but unfortunately it is not displaying results. I was able to run The Sims 3 fine but my main concerns are if my Processors and CPU is good enough as I understand my system is fro early 2000's and i'm worried it's too old to be able to run The Sims 4. I'm reading this off of my device manager by the way:

 

(WIndows XP)

 

Display Adapters: ATI Radeon HD 4550

Processors: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz

 

Can I run The Sims 4? 

If you need any more information please tell me but direct me on how to find this information.

Thanks!

(I'm [personal information removed for security reasons] so sorry if this doesn't make great sense i'm not great with computers)

Heya

 

I'm not too great with computers either - trust me, I'm useless with specs and all Confusedmileywink: 

 

I found this: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4/FAQ-Known-technical-Information-PLEASE-READ-FIRST/td-p/2962134 (go to the system requirements spoiler) which pretty much summarises the requirements that we have info to at the moment.

Hi, thank you but I already knew the System Requirements but I have no idea if my System if compatiable with the requirements displayed. 

I'm having a hard time understanding if my System exceeds the requirements, is equivalent or are too low to run the game.

 

Thanks again though

If you can collect your Dxdiag information and upload it to a sharing website and then post the link here we can tell you for sure if your system meets the requirements for this game. Possibly not if your CPU is not a dual core one.

Do you want me to send it in a text file. If so what site can I use for that or should I screenshot one of the Diagnostic Pages?
