Question about Sony VAIO RB30C (VGCRB30) PC Desktop

2 Answers

Will the ''Sims 3'' work on this computer...?

I've had it since 05-06, and I'm worried that the game won't work once I get it. My Sims 2 games with expansion packs work fine though...

Will it be slow? Or will it not function at all?

    I can't really spend any extra cash for a new video card, but until I can save up for one, will the one I have be okay for now?

It should be OK, your system shipped with P4 3ghz processor, so thet should suffice, what you may need is a high end video card and at least 1 or 2 gb memory. I dont reccomend using the onboard video.

    As long as you keep your visualization settings to a minimum within the game I would say yae, should be ok, Though I do not know what video you are using now.

    Happy Simming!

You could probably run the game on high settings with under 150.00 in upgrades. 
I would reccomend a Nvidia 9600 GT (http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010380048%204027%20106792522&name=GeForce%209%20series)
For Ram I would reccomend using the crucial.com memory scanner and ordering(2gb) memory through them. 
Upgrading RAM will give you a huge increase in performance not only for games, but for your all around computer usage  and is without a doubt worth every penny!

    It will most likely run slow but you can do some minor upgrades on your computer to make it run faster, basically a new video card and ram. 


    For ram if you don't have 2GB already I highly suggest getting 2GB ( 2 x 1GB sticks of DDR PC3200 RAM)  One kit is about $60.00 total. I would also suggest a new PCi-E video card, You certainly get what you pay for and I would highly reccomend a Nvidia 9600 GT or 9600 GSO Which will run you anywhere from 50-100 dollars on newegg.com 


    Please see my links for prices, Total it would probably run you about 150 bucks, but overall it would give you hudge improvements on your computer and allow you to play many if not all the latest games at decent speeds. 


    By the way the official requirements for the game are here:

    sorry about that double post, my system glitched. 

  • MoveTwice May 25, 2009

    If you can afford it, I would highly reccomend at least the RAM upgrade, it will give you a major all around improvement on your computer.

How can i download a game software to my pc games . like the sim 3 etc..


I have a site where I download all my PC games for free:

http://thepiratebay.org/


once you found the preferred game on that site just click on it, once you click on it, you have the option to download it on Utorrent for to download it free, but the thing is you have to have a Utorrent first so that you can download PC games for free.

Hope this will help you.

Sims to double deluxe eror report!!!!!!


You have to have the disc in your cd/dvd drive to play the game. the game will not play without the disc. If you have any expansion packs installed you need to use the latest expansion disc. For instance, I have Free Time but not Apartment Life so I must have the Free Time disc in the drive to play the Sims 2, not the Sims 2 disc.

The Sims 2 Freetime or The Sims 2 Apartment Life Wont Launch When Installed. After I Uninstall Them I Am Allowed To Play With Seasons. IVe Previously Played Freetime Before But Now It Just Wont Launch....


Make sure you have the original The Sims 2 game, Seasons,Freetime and Apartment Life are just expansion packs to the Original Game. Without the original game the expansions won't work.

If that's not the problem, then make sure they are installed correctly. If you used download m, most likely theyanagerare corrupted.


(Plus just as an extra question, why were you trying to play The Sims 2 a day before The Sims 3 came out, I couldn't sleep.)

Cd drive doesn't see sims 2 double deluxe


I tried the sims 2 game on another computer, which has vista home premium OS. The same problem occurred on that computer. I wonder if the game changed the registry and prevents the game from being reinstalled.

Sims 2 game


I think that program you have mentioned is corrupt! Don't worry cause this happened to me too! All you have to do is
  1. Go to my documents and select the file with the name Sims 2
  2. Copy and paste that to the desktop
  3. Then re install Sims 2 and then after installing play the game for a little while and then log off
  4. Then go to My documents and copy the Sims 2 folder you copied to the desktop to My documents
  5. Then play your game!
You do this so that your saved games do not get lost even if you reinstall the game!
