Default OS questions

Just to start off- Hello CF community.

Right now I am looking into purchasing The Sims 3 game and I have some questions about my OS and the required one. It says "2.4 GHz P4 processor" under minimum and I have an AMD Athlon 64 (all I know about it). I guess I am asking if I can run it. Let me know if my info is too vague, I suppose I could search more.

You may struggle. Assuming that you're running Windows, open the Start menu and right-click on My Computer, then select properties. It should say, somewhere, "AMD Athlon 64 'XXXX' Processor" ('XXXX' being the model) and give you a clock speed, too.

Thanks. I found that I have AMD Athlon 64 3500+, even though that means little to me. I am getting some new hardware updates sometime soon so that will help me out a little. And yes, I forgot to mention I am running on Windows XP.

The Athlon 64 3500+ runs at 2.2GHz. It should do OK as long as the rest of the system is good. How much memory do you have and what video card are you running?
