I tried installing sims 4 in my cpu dell optiplex 980 however i ran a test online if it could run sims 4 and it said that my videocard is Intel(R)Ironlake Desktop Graphics Chipset Accelerated VGA BIOS , and the minimum requirement is NVIDIA GeForce 6600 or ATI Radeon X1300 or Intel GMA X4500. Is it really not possible to play it using this pc? I don't know much about stuff like these, so I would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you in advance!

Thank you for your reply but are the Dedicated Video Memory, System Video Memory, and Shared System Memory should show n/a? When I looked up about the adapter information and the total available graphics memory only showed 32704kb.

Since HD Graphics, as far as I remember, it has dynamic VRAM. It will only use what it needs. So if you are just doing normal desktop stuff it will drop it and if it needs more it will take more from the system RAM, up to 3GB I believe.

What program was showing N/A?
