Basically those are the required specs to run the game so it's playable. You might be able to get away with a 1 ghz machine if you have like a gig of ram and a higher video card. But don't count on it too much.macbaseball said:I'm always confused about this: Do the system requirements mean that it won't run unless the computer has those specs, or are those just reccommended specs. I want to buy it for my sister for her birthday, but I'm afraid it won't run...
Ok, thank you. I guess the 800 MHz iMac G4 just won't cut it.JzzTrump22 said:Basically those are the required specs to run the game so it's playable. You might be able to get away with a 1 ghz machine if you have like a gig of ram and a higher video card. But don't count on it too much.
Yea let us know because i'm interested if you will get by with that processor. Oh, btw, what video card do you have in that machine?thevessels said:im gonna give it a try on my 1ghz powerbook .. i have like 768mb of ram .. ill let you guys know how it runs
ive been waiting for the for a while ...
Yikes. Hope this isn't the case...jamdr said:A friend of mine has already recieved the game (no, he didn't pirate it, apparently the pre-ordered copies are already being sent out). I haven't played it yet, but he says it's really slow on his 2.5GHz PowerMac G5 with Nvidia 6800. The good news is that apparently there is an issue with just Nvidia cards and it should run faster on ATI cards. I really want to buy this game but I'm not going to if it won't be playable (like Doom 3). I'm actually considering upgrading my 1GHz eMac to the latest model with the 9600 video card just to play it--buy I wonder if that would even make much a difference.
Please post here when you get the game and let us know what your specs are and how well the game runs.
The same system (3ghz P4) will run it fine in OS X. *winking smiley face*joshuawaire said:Well, I have to turn the graphics quality down to medium in The Sims 2 (PC) with reflections off on my P4 3Ghz/1GB/128MB ATI 9800 SE to get a useable performance. So I don't imagine anything below a G5 with a nice ($$$) graphics card will run The Sims 2 "well."
TheGimp said:I've played it on a dual 1.8 w/ RAdeon 9800SE and 2GB ram. Framerate is terribly low (<15 FPS) with everything on medium or high at 1920x1200. Even at 800x600 with everything on medium, performance was visually choppy. I hate this game anyway, so I probably won't post again in this thread.
Yes, I find this to be ridiculous.maelstromr said:Does anyone else find this to be ridiculous? Why do I suspect that you are the kind of person that expects 8058438 FPS or won't play a game? I can't believe that system wouldn't run the game very well, unless there is something majorly wrong with the computer.
