Sims 2 on Geforce4 Ti?
Posted by: JJ_TKOB

The system requirements say a Geforce FX5200 or "later".

The Geforce4 Ti is older, but from everything I have read it is also better than the FX5200.

Can anyone confirm that the Sims 2 runs fine on a GF4 Ti?

Thanks in advance.


System Requirements
* 1.2 GHz or faster G4/G5 processor
* Mac OS X v10.3.8 or later
* 256MB RAM minimum
* 3GB free hard-disk space
* 32MB VRAM minimum
* Radeon 9000 or later (ATI) or GeForce FX5200 or later
* DVD drive

Well, we don't have the Sims 2, but I can give you a list of things we use with ours that are probably comparable:

X-Plane
X2
Sim City 4 Rush Hour
Zoo Tycoon
StarCraft
WarCraft
Star Trek shooters
Star Wars shooters
EV Nova

Hope this helps. It's really an awesome card. I would imagine it would handle the Sims 2 pretty well.

I've run the Sims 2 on my 1ghz Ti and it does fine. Sure it would be better on a faster computer/better video card, but it does ok.

Thanks so much for your responses.

I will post about this again once I have my daughter's upgraded processor and the GF4 Ti installed (after Christmas).

I just picked up a G5 Geoforce FX5200 for $20 shipped on ebay. For my MDD

With a little cut here, a little widening there, cutting two trace contacts and it should work flawlessly after that.

TheGrimNinja is also selling one on MacSwap.org for $50 already modded.

Yeah, but they don't work in a Gigabit Ethernet (2X AGP). Plus, the GF4 Ti is a better card from everything I have read...

My bad, I though you had an MDD.
