    Sounds like you're good to go. I'd go with the 16GB RAM to future proof your computer.

You also need FAR more hard drive space than that. This has got 2TB and it's not enough. 256GB - I've got flash drives more capacious than that. 1TB bare minimum.

    16GB - "future proof"…?

    @BrexitSaboteur, the game requires a certain amount of RAM to play if you read the specs for the game. For the Base Game is says it requires 4GB of RAM. However, with the more EPs/GPs/SPs you add plus Mods and CC, you need at least double the RAM to run the game. 16GB will allow you to run the game comfortably without lag.

    For me personally, I play on an iMac. I have 32GB of RAM which allows me to run Sims 4 quite comfortably without lag. But then I am on a Desktop and not a laptop computer.
