I just want to know if any of these computers are good enough to run Sims 3 with all the expansion and stuff packs on them smoothly? :

I wouldn't recommend the Acer Desktop due to it not being a gaming computer. I3 processors aren't made for gaming. It also doesn't have a dedicated video card. -- It's under minimum specs for the game also. Processor and graphics wise.

The CyberPowerPC is a good starter pc. It has a mid-level processor and 8GB memory. However, the video card is a lower-end and may have problems with playing the game - base game with all expansions and stuff packs.

The Tower PC from Walmart didn't give any computer specifications. (Info on the processor/memory or video card.) So I wouldn't recommend that one either. As when they don't post specs, it's an automatic out, in my opinion.

A good gaming desktop will run you anywhere between $600-$800 or more.

Here's a couple of examples:

iBUYPOWER Gaming Desktop PC - AMD FX 6300 6-Core 3.5 GHz, AMD Radeon RX 550 2GB, 8GB DDR3 RAM, 1TB 7200RPM HDD, AlphaB8140A2
Price: $599.99

While it has a mid-level processor, it has a higher-end graphics card that will play Sims 3 and all it's packs on medium up to high.

CYBERPOWERPC Gamer Xtreme GXIVR8020A5 Desktop Gaming PC (Intel i5-8400 6 Core Processor, AMD RX 580 4GB, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 1TB 7200RPM HDD,
Price: $799.00

This has a high-level processor and higher-end graphics card that will definitely play Sims 3 and all packs on high.

Which would I pick between the two examples? I'd pick the CyberPowerPC, because overall, it's a better pc.
