    Hey seen a few other people asking for tech advice, so thought I'd give it a shot!
    I've been saving for a gaming desktop and finally wanting to get back into the sims since the recent updates!
    My budget for the desktop alone is 1,200 pounds
    Someone sent me this link on another site *i can't send it because I haven't been a member on here for long enough, it was from plum pc. Do you have any suggestions if you wouldn't mind helping out. Also maybe I could DM you the link ?
    Thanks :)

    Hi there Chester.
    Ive heard that i have to go for advice on pc stats at you.. So hopefully you can hrlp me!
    Can you please help me decide of which of the 2 desktop i can better buy?

    I do have an AMD Radeon R7 200 series graphics card, that i can transfer from my old pc if its better than the given GPU's.
    Price difference is about 80$

    Desktop 1:
    Processor: AMD A10-8750
    Memory: 8 GB
    Storage 256 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD
    Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 745 (4 GB)

    Desktop 2:
    Processor: Intel Core i5-6400
    Memory: 8 GB
    Storage: 96 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD
    Graphics Card: Intel HD Graphics 530

    Both of these desktops are factory made.. So no custom builds.. I dont know what motherboard they have though....

    Thanks in advance for your help!

      Thank you! Do you think it will still run on ultra settings if i add any CC into the game or will i have to change the settings around?:)

      Should i also add an optical drive to the PC? I'm not sure if Origin will require me to have to disc to re-install it onto the new PC? Thanks:)

    Hey Chester. Thank you again for letting me know about my PC! I hope you don't mind that I post on your wall? I can't edit my posts yet and I'm worried if it might seem like I'm spamming the thread.

    What I forgot to tell you was a small update: when I'm now running the TS2 my PC is no longer over-heating. The cause of the heat seems to be that apparently I miscalculated the virtual memory (I accidentally added a huge amount that sprained my RAM). I haven't tried TS3 just yet to test this theory, but I'll definitely keep you posted just in case it helps.

    Thank you again for being so helpful to all of us here - you rock! <3 :D
