The Sims 3 Discussion
The game itself is ok, however, somtime the game itself will crash, without any type of cheats enable.
Are we all having the same problem since this is a new game and we are still awaiting for an upcoming patches from Sims3 ?
My wife PC is pretty current using an eVGA 7800GTX with current driver, 2 GB corsair, 3 GB AMD dual Core, and over 650 Watts psu. I dont think it has nothing to do with the hardware unless the game needs to run on more current GPU cards as known as 8 or 9 series.
Maybe its just a patch we are all waiting from Sims 3.
thanks for any info
Id advise updating to a geforce 200 series. you dont need a cpu upgrade and windows only allows 3.07gb of ram. Most games these days run 90% off the Graphics card.
If you go upgrade to a new 200 series graphics card be careful. the majority of the 200 series need 2x6pin power plugs and a 650w power supply isnt garunteed to have one.
Hope i helped in some way
I am running Sims 3 with a NVidia Gforce 6200 and am not having problems, other than maybe a little slow, but no lockups/crashes. But I am pretty much used to that. The only time I have slow downs is when I save the game or load it. It takes like forever, but really only about 30 seconds.
As for talk about old system, here's my spec.
AMD K7 2200+
MSI Motherboard KT6v-LSR
1 Gig 2700ms Memory
NVidia GeForce 6200 (256k mem)
A bunch of other garbage that doesn't make that much difference.
And one Big difference probably is I am running Windows XP SP3
So like I said, I don't have a powerhouse of a machine but I am very happy playing Sims 3 now. I am not saying that it doesn't lag sometimes, but I am having a lot of fun playing it.
Oh and about the patches, I check everytime I log on and haven't seen any patches/fixes yet. It always tells me "Your version is up todate.
