Hello everyone.. I will be looking for a new computer soon and I would love to know who has the best model at a reasonable price for playing my sims without any problems. Who would know better than sims fans. Any & all advice will be appreciated.

All I know is lots of ram, a huge graphics card, AND a big enough hard drive to keep all the cc!!
But in a more serious light, I usually ask my son to help pick out the right stuff, he knows that I do not have patience, I can't sit around waiting for stuff to load.....
But I wish I were you, I also need to upgrade soon......

I know from having several PCs to try to play sims on that a graphics card of good quality is really important. I have Nvidia Ge force right now, although I'm needing an upgrade soon, so there may be newer and better ones, although I have been told Nvidia is the way to go for gaming.

Does that come with the computer or is it a separate buy? I'm sure its not cheap.

Renee, this may be of use. Just remember, if you are having to go with Win 10, up all specs considerably, and if you have much custom content, you'll need basically as much memory (RAM) as you can get. Also, you may need to play in Compatibility Mode.

Edit: Sharing this for drooling purposes... the MSI Nightblade Mini Gaming PC Phoenix. Someday...
(if I win the lottery!)

Incidentally, Tilly mentioned that the graphics card came with the machine. It doesn't always. Be careful with any machine labelled "barebones". This one sounds like a deal to the unwary, but the graphics card, DDR3 DIMM, and CPU cooler are NOT included.

I will make note of all this expert advise for when I too, win the lottery. Sounds way out of my league, but, we can dream.
