Ignore what the people that sold you the system have said, it may be true, it may be they are just trying to get more money off you. What the Forum will need to know is, what speed processor you have, how much memory you have, which Operating System you have (I presume XP), what graphics you have and what game you are trying to run but can't. The link MichelleC gave you to SIW will give you all that information. Just post back with the info I asked for and you should get your answer. Without that info theres no help anyone can give.
ok here goes not sure what info u want so here goes.video adaptor sis 651c 64mb 3d acclertor sis 330mirage 1gp and window xp home, one game was sim2 and the other was of real arcade atlatic quest if u need any more info i will try and find it ty lol
Right it appears you are using windows xp and have a computer with integrated sis 330 mirage graphics and the motherboard is based on the sis 651c chipset. Now does everest tell you the make and model of motherboard you have so I can see if it has an AGP slot for a graphics card. It will says something like PC Chips M935G which it might be. Need the motherboard make and number to confirm but I'm certain you have onboard graphics, this means the graphics you have is built in to the motherboard itself and this I am 95% sure this is the reason you do need a new graphics card to play the Sims 2. Could you also tell me what speed the processor CPU is and how much memory you have. Everest will tell you this as well. I just want to make sure that getting a graphics card will be the only thing you need to be able to play the Sims 2.
