Will a GTS430 play the sims 3?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ordering a PC for my sister, going to have an i3 2100 dual core in there as well. Would the 430 be able to play the sims at 1680x1050?

Yes you should be fine. Near high details, if not maxed out.

I have a 9600GT that maxed it out and ran at 75fps so I don't see why it wouldn't work with that.

Yes. with ease

I think it's more than enough. The system requirements call for an Intel 4 or equivalent at 2.0GHz for WinXP, and 2.4GHz for Win7. The graphics card requirements call for a DX9 card that has at least 128MB of memory.

They also say that there should be at least 1GB of system memory installed in XP, or 1.5GB in Win7.
