PC for The Sims 3 + other games

Post by Sharkie on Mon 07 Dec 2015, 12:09

Hello,

I want to buy a new PC. I want to play The Sims 3 with all expansions and some other games like World of Warcraft. I don't want a PC with an old GPU, like gtx 6** GPU's for example. So first I was planning to buy a PC with a GTX 970, but after some research, I came to a conclusion that this card is a bad idea for The Sims 3, because it's too new. Then I saw a PC with a GTX 780 (and intel i5 4440 CPU), which isn't THAT new (it's a GPU from 2013). According to the guide at modthesims (http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_System_Requirements#The_Sims_3_System_Requirements) it's compatbile with The Sims 3 and all expansions, but still I read at forums about problems with The Sims 3 not recognizing gtx 780, and thus people still having lag in game. So I don't know what to do anymore :/ I want to buy a PC which will run The Sims 3 and all expansions smoothly and at highest settings, but I don't want an old GPU, because I want to play other games as well (also the new ones). 

Any advice? Does any of you guys have that GPU? If so, what's your experience? Please help.

You don't really need a GPU for Sims 3 at all. What you need is a really good CPU. From my experience, the i5 4440 won't do the job.

So gtx 780 won't be recognised at all? Oh that's too bad Sad I guess I'm not gonna play The Sims 3 then, I can't stand a laggy game with such a good GPU. Oh well... 

Thank you anyway!
