    Hi, Hope you are well.

    I am finally buying a computer this week. After going back and forth, I finally decided on a desktop. I would prefer to purchase from Walmart or Best Buy. My budget is $700-900 USD. I would appreciate any help and recommendations.

    Thank you!

    Hello everyone
    I have a question!
    My computer
    Cpu AMD Phenom II x 4 955
    Ram 8 gb
    Video card GTX 1050 2 gb
    Os win 7 64bit

    my setting sims 4 ultra option postprocessing effect is off.

    I have no lag

    However, when the light enters the village in the evening, the game stops for 3-4 seconds.

    Is it a problem with graphics cards?
    Is it a problem with cpu?

    Does your sims 4 stop too?

    Please somebody write thread to forum .

    i wonder the other players

    Thank you very much.

    No, the game is like that when the lighting changes. For me, it kinda just lags for a second or so.

    It's low end. I don't know how or even if it will run the game at all. We don't recommend AMD for laptops. AMD laptops are usually lower end and not really made for gaming

    I do not see any reason it will not, however a good cooling pad can be you and the laptop friend, reason being some laptops generate a lot of heat. :)

    The laptop meet requirements accept for the video card. You really need a GTX 1050 card or higher to meet recommended requirements. I don't know how the MX150 card will work with the game and it may not survive all the game add ons if you intend on adding all packs, GPs EPs . Playing with CC and mods could also be an issue with that card. The game is not complete

    That laptop also has a small ssd on C drive. It's too small to game on. You would have to install the game on the second 1tb hard drive

    Since you state this laptop is new, I would return it f you can and find a laptop that meets all requirements so you don't have to worry about having possible issues running this game now or in the future. Look for a laptop with a better video card Nvidia GTX 1050, 105 ti or 1060 . The laptop should be 1080p resolution 60 hz.

    Should be more than fine. I don't know my way around laptop specific parts, but looks like you should either be able to max out all settings or at least set them all to pretty good.

    sims 4 requirements don't seem to hard on computers

    Hi everyone!
    I'm new to this forum so I can't create my own thread. Hope it's fine that I post here.

    I'm currently browsing for a new laptop since the one I have is almost dead. I want to be able to run Sims 4 with all expansion packs in the highest settings.

    After reading this article picknotebook(dot)com/blog/sims-4-laptop/, I have a few specs already decided:

    - i7 (7th generation)
    - 16 GB RAM
    - Screen and battery life are not important as I play with the laptop plugged in to an Ultra HD TV.

    And these are the specs I need your help on deciding what's best:

    - 7700HQ with GTX 1050M 4GB
    vs
    - 6700HQ with GTX 960M 4GB – this one is lower but will it make a difference?

    And for storage options:

    - 512GB SSD only
    vs
    - 1TB HDD + 128GB SSD combo
    vs
    - 1TB HDD only

    The brands of the laptops I'm considering are ASUS Rog Strix (Model GL553VD-DM178T), Dell Inspiron Gaming (Model 5577), Dell Inspiron (Model 5559).

    Thank you all for reading this far! Hope you can help.

    Is it really a GTX1050m or GTX1050? I have a GTX1050 on my laptop and it runs a bit better than my 960m, and you would be able to see the difference, I think.

    For the storage options, I would personally pick the 512GB SSD cuz I like to just install all the programs I use in it so it boots up faster. 128GB SSD is too small. But I'm not someone who has a lot of stuff saved. I have a 500GB SSD and have about 300GB left of space as of now.

  • NikkihNikkih Posts: 364 Member
    Do you think it be able to play if I put the graphic settings low and only get 3 expansions packs . I wasnt wanting to get alot of expansion packs. It's just a shame that it meets everything else apart from the graphics card. Thanks again for getting back to me and taking time of your personal time to help. @phoebebebe13
