I wish to buy a laptop that will play sims pc games. ?Do I need to get a hard
drive of 160gb or more?? What other requirements do I need for a new PC?

It’s always a good idea to look at the requirements of the programs and games you’re looking to use on your new computer before you buy the product.? New computers today are designed to run some of the most intense games, including laptops; you just have to make sure you’re looking at the right product line.

Let’s look at ways to navigate your way around the internet to determine product specifications for the Sims 3 (the newest release I think?)? and other software you may be looking to install on your new computer to determine what hardware you should choose for your new laptop.

The best tool the internet offers is the searching ability and the wide variety of data at a search engines disposal.? If we use the popular Google search engine to search for “The Sims 3 PC requirements,” we’ll be able to click one of the first couple links to find the requirements for what the game would require on your new laptop:

XP (Service Pack 2)
Processor: Pentium IV 2.4 GHz / Athlon XP 2400+
Memory: 1.5 GB
Graphics GeForce: Go 6200 / Radeon mobile 9600
Graphics Ram: 128 MB
Vista (Service Pack 1)
Processor: Pentium: IV 2.4 GHz / Athlon XP 2400+
Memory: 2.0 GB
Graphics: GeForce Go 6200 / Radeon mobile 9600
Graphics: 128 MB

It looks like the game is not as computer intensive as one may think, but yo should be running at least 2 gigs of RAM which is different them the hard drive memory.? In relation to your question, I would recommend at least a 160 gig hard drive regardless of your gaming future.? Anything below a 160 gig hard drive is just too small for today’s software; a game like the Sims will only take a fraction of it so you are in the clear with a 160, but coupled with your core system files, pictures, music…etc. it becomes smaller quickly.

For any of your computer requirement specifications, I suggest you use the search engines; you’d be surprised with how much (random) information is on there!
