It's me again...

Upgraded to a desktop and was wondering about it's configuration for Sims 4...Here's the specs (so far)

HP Pavilion 590-p0033w

Intel core i3-8100 cpu @3.60GHz
4GB of memory (will be upgraded to max-32 GB ASAP)
Intel UHD Graphics 630 (integrated...PITA, I know)

I have 625.65 GB out of 9331.51 GB of disk space free for the game and anything else for it (mods, etc.)

Now, the 25 Billion dollar question....Will this run Sims 4? The Sims 3 plumbob

I know people who said the Intel UHD Graphics 620 was OK for The Sims 4. Not sure on which settings though. I'll assume for the moment that "Intel UHD Graphics 630" is a later model, and therefore it should be OK as well.

As with the rest of the specs, but I don't need to tell you these laptops are at best sub-optimal for games in general.

danger! beware!!

OK, but still doesn't make much of a difference in terms of performance. Haters gonna hate
