    Question Making Sims 3 run faster
    Hi there,

    I realize Sims 3 is a game that requires a pretty high-end gaming system, but I was wondering if there's anything else I can do to make it run faster on my mac. Here's some background stuff:

    I've already tried:

    -Playing without custom content
    -Running all graphic options on "low"

    Here's my specs:
    -MacBook Pro (brand new last year)
    -Mac OS X, Version 10.6.8
    -Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz
    -Memory: 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    -Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 320M (VRAM: 256 MB)

    Is there anything else (aside from getting a new computer) that I can do to boost the speed of my game? Let me know if there's anything else you need to know.

    Thank you in advance

    Upgrading your RAM should significantly help. I am sure you also know this, but only have that one program running at the time.
