PC System Analysis For The Sims 4 Requirements
Your PC will need a graphics card thats as powerful as a GeForce GTX 650 1GB/Radeon HD 7750 1GB GDDR5 and it should be paired with either a Athlon X4 750K/Core i5-680 3.6GHz CPU to match the The Sims 4 recommended system specs. This PC setup will deliver 60 Frames Per Second on High graphics settings on 1080p monitor resolution. 4 GB will also be needed to achieve the The Sims 4 rec specs and get 60FPS. You should also have 2 GB system memory for min specs. Make sure your GPU can run DirectX 9 or The Sims 4 won’t run. We suggest a 9 year old PC to play smoothly.
