    gig?:) u mean gigabytes?:) your ram is half a gig...512mb is half (1 gig is 1024mb) and 512mbs of ram is fine for playing sims

    sometimes people get confused with memory and hard drive space. Can you be more specific to your question please?

    That is due to some other problem. Do you have the right graphics card for the game? The requirements for the game are on the box. Does your machine meet the requirements?

    to add to Elvandil's post, go to http://canyourunit.com/ and select the game (under T. You can use any of The Sims listings, but not Sims 2 if you have The Sims)

    When the test is done, it will tell you if your machine can handle the game.
