Is this good enough?

Post by Mera on Tue 04 Dec 2012, 16:24

Hello. I'm getting a new laptop but I'm not sure if Sims 3 will be playable. I wanna install all EPs+ all SPs except KPST.
I couldn't find any english details about this laptop (or notebook?) but it's model is Asus X43SD.
As I've read here, GeForce GT 610M DDR3 isn't such a great idea for The Sims 3. Wat. Anyone played with this video card? Question

Hello,

I think you should be able to play all EP/SP's on it. That graphicscard isn't supported according to that simswiki page, but it looks like it is on this list of cards that have been confirmed working by sims players. It is in blue though, which means it definitely works with the base game, but not definitely with the EP's.

having said that, this wikipage lists my card as supported with the base game, but none of the EP's, only 2 packs get a "maybe", still it works fine on medium settings. I can run the game on the highest settings and I do if I want screenshots, but it's too much to actually play on those settings.
Is it at all possible that you replace the card or have it replaced by one that is confirmed working with all EP's? That is, if it doesn't work. You may want to take your chances with this card.

Thank you so much for the big help. Then I think i'm going to buy that one cause it one of the three options. If I could, I'd pick a nicer one but not with USD's current price in Iran. Sad Thanks again.

How about this one? Asus X43SD: http://www.pemmz.com/asus-x43sd-vx567v.html

Hello there,

I didn't look into it very closely, but it looks like a neat laptop.

I've heard nothing but good things about Asus laptops. I guess they have fantastic customer service, even though it's not needed much. XD
