    Hey I am looking to buy an iMac and have bought the Sims 3. This is the most gaming I will probably do and was wondering how the 24" with 9400M would handle it?

    Any help would be great,

    Thanks

    I would hope a brand new computer would handle it well...

    (It will.)

    With the 9400 I would think it may run OK but only in low to medium settings.

    Sims 3

    My 3.06ghz APPLE iMac has got:
    4GB DDR2 Ram
    1TB HD
    2 Kingston Memory
    NVIDIA GeForce 9400M
    I hope Sims 3 works in it.

    Will the SIMS3 also run on the pre-2009 iMacs?

    Mine is the iMac8,1 version:
    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.8 GHz
    4 GB DDR2 SDRAM
    ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro
    running on Snow Leopard now...

    :confused:

    Please let me know if this will do before I purchase Sims3 :) Thank you guys!

    It will run smoothly, dont worry about it. I have a macbook at 2.2 ghz and a crappy intel integrated and it still runs it, not great but with tuned down graphics it works well. With 9400 nvidia you will get a good performance. Sims is made for game play not extreme graphics so you are okay.
