I got a G4 1.25 GHZ eMac w/ 768 MB of RAM. What you guys think?
Probably not, from what I read on the games forum it wont run smoothly on most G4s especially not on an emac because it only has a 32mb graphics card, you might want to try the sims 1 and the HUGE expansion set, thats what I did.
ehhh... OK, I've already played out the first one a long time ago.
Actually I heard it will run fine with those specs... Even if its a 9200 graphic card, just turn down the effects.
for the beginning, it should work OK... but dont even think about inviting more than 1 other person over to the house, it will turn into a slideshow.
it runs decently on my Powerbook (specs in sig), but having more than 4 people on the screen in a normal sized house is living hell on my machine... for that reason I dont play the game that often.
oh BTW, that is with all options set to LOW.

and one of the more moral excuses for pirating a game applies here, you can test it out before buying, if i hadn't pirated rise of nations i would have bought it and be boned because it wont work on either of my macs, it has a stupid ass messeges that stops you playing it if your below any of the specs, for my ibook i only have 16MB vram even though it's a radeon, and for my cube i had a 450MHz cpu and it required a 600MHz one (which my ibook had.
Will you be able to run it? Yes. Will it run smoothly? Absolutely not. A lot of frames will skip, it may generally just seem slow depending on what you are used to, but it will be quite playable. I think the only machine the Sims 2 will run "smoothly" on is a high-end G5. But there's no reason you can't enjoy it on your machine unless the low frame rate would really bother you that much.
