right click your my computer and go to properties for your cpu and ram. Also, good luck with the game. I went to meet the guy that made the sims and the EA team that done the sims 2. They played the beta version. It is soo cool. I loved the cut sences for the sex and the needs and wants.

the 128 might just cut it. But like when you go to build your house etc itll lagg a bit..and during game play. If it does this, ram is not at all expensive.

the processor should do fine. As for the ram, it just slots in. Very easy you can pick up 512Mb of ram for around 45
