Monitor and computer seams fine to me.. except the GPU. (a GPU is the graphics processor)
You want to play Sims. It's not a demanding game, but still, the GPU you have is an onboard one. It on your CPU it self. (a Cpu is the main brain in a computer). It will play Sims, but it's not gonna be pretty.

You should ad a dedicated graphics card to it. a cheap one will do for Sims.
I found a GT 640 on sale for only 58. It has more than double the performance as the inbuilt Radeon HD 8470D chip.

This one http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00N308222?psc=1 is a better and already has the R7 240 2GB GPU included and has a better CPU for only 14 more.

Nice find BK. I Agree.
that system is better for you. The GT640 is still slightly better than the R7-240, but you don't have to pay 58 for a new graphics card. the R7-240 is still better than the inbuilt GPU.
