Those who have even the slightest idea of what the upcoming expansion for the Sims 2, Seasons, is about, will know that it's quite graphics intensive. Because of this the game will require more of your system, and so the pack may not work well on some older PCs, even if the Sims 2 itself runs without problems. Rather than having enough with a 800Mhz or 1 Ghz processor (for the base game and previous expansions), it requires at least 1300 Mhz (just like Pets). Without a T&L capable graphics card you'll nAlthough 256 Mb of RAM will still suffice as a minimum, at least 512 Mb RAM is recommended if you're running either Vista or if you have some other expansions installed as well. The pack requires an additional 1.5 Gb of hard disk space, common for most expansions. Another difference with the Sims 2 is that, ATI Radeon 7x00 graphics cards are no longer supported. You need at least a Radeon 9600 or GeForce 6200 or better if you run Vista. Some other cards are now supported though, including the S3 GammaChrome, S18 Pro and the S18 Ultra Intel(R) Extreme Graphics 82865, 82915 and above. The last ones will require a fast processor though.
See the requirements page
for all the details, and check that you meet at least the minimum requirements before trying to install or play the new expansion pack. Thanks to SimsNetwork
