Otherwise just get the least expensive PCI x16 motherboard and and an ok cooling system.
2 things you should never skimp on .... Power Supply and Motherboard.

As the MB is the backbone of any PC, I would look for deals on quality Brand / Models .... not just buy the cheapest board by the cheapest manufacturer.

just make sure you dont waste money on a motherboard with a lot of things you dont need

(if you dont use SLi dont get one that has SLi capabilities and waste $50)

You aren't looking at anything too expensive if all you want to run adequately is Sims 2 and other similar games. Infact you're looking at something very cheap, given Sims 2 minimum requirements.



To be honest a 19" LCD monitor would probably cost as much as the system you're actually building/buying :D

Can't really help you more than that given the fact I'm based in Europe and don't order parts off Newegg.com which is based in America, sorry :eek:

I dont care what min req. are for that game. 512 isnt good enough for it. You need something way better.
