I'm buying my daughter a new computer. I have limited money so I'm thinking referbished. I have a couple of Dells. Both choices have AMD Athlon processors. One is 64 Duel Core, the other is x2 processor. I'm not sure if one is better or both the same. I learned a lot from reading the forum on this sight but I'm still a litttle confused. Both of the computers have integrated nvidia Quadro nvs 210s graphics. She mainly uses it for internet (UTube video) and Sims. She plays sims 2, and just got Sims 3 but her old computer is not capable. Sims 3 requirements name many nvidia Ge Force, Radian (several) and intel GMA 3 & 4 series. The Quadro is not included, is that because it's to new or because Quadro is actually for business application?

Hi cinnamon555,

According to the offcial Nvidia Quadro geforce 210 website: http://www.nvidia.in/object/product_geforce_210_in.html , Sims3 are well supported:
Modern games and 3D applications demand more graphics performance than ever before and Intel integrated graphics simply aren’t good enough. With 16 processing cores, the GeForce 210 delivers over 10x the performance1 of Intel integrated solutions! If you want to play popular mainstream games like World of Warcraft, Spore or Sims3, the GeForce 210 is an essential addition to your PC.
Hope it helps.

Thanks for reading.

Sorry, but I mistaken the Nvidia, you said Quadro nvs 210s, so it's not the same graphic card that I looked for. I'm still searching for a good reply.

Thanks.

Ok,
It seems that Nvidia Quadro nvs 210s is the same as NVIDIA GeForce 6150LE. Windows system detects Nvidia Quadro nvs 210 as NVIDIA Quadro NVS 210S / NVIDIA GeForce 6150LE.

According to the SIMS official website the lower graphic card that can be used with Sims 3 is Nvidia 6200 that is more powerful than the 6150LE (http://www.ehow.com/info_8025400_geforce-6150-le-specifications.html).

On paper, you can't run SIMS 3 game.

Thanks for reading.
