Looking for a new computer for The Sims 4.
« on: January 25, 2018, 12:31:02 PM »
Im looking for a new PC or laptop computer for the sims 4. I want something that can run well with bigger households and bigger houses, as well as have some CC and mods. What are the best specs for achieving that? I would like it to range in price anywhere from $300-$400. Is it possible to have a computer that will run the game efficiently under or around that price range? I would rather have PC than a laptop so I'm mainly focusing on the computer itself not including the monitor and mouse and keyboard in the budget. If you could find any computer suggestions for my needs, the would be greatly appreciated. My computer now runs the game okay, but with bigger households and houses it begins to run worse and worse. I love the game very much and I do not want my lack of computer power to keep me from truly enjoying it. Any replies will be greatly appreciated.

My Macbook computer specs:
-processor: 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
-Memory: 8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
-Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB

You will need a higher budget if you want a computer that runs the game well. As computers in the $300-$400 price range aren't designed to play games.

Desktops are in the range of $600-$800 budget.
Laptops are usually $800 and up, depending on sales.

Here's an example of a desktop and laptop that will run the game well.
