system requirements aren't too bad:
Operating System and Programs:
SimCity will run on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7, as well as Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.4.
To experience SimCity, players will need an Internet connection of at least 256 kbps download and 64kbps upload or faster.
Intel players will need, minimally, a 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo, while our AMD players will need at least a an Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+.
Players will need a system with at least 2GB of RAM.
Players will need at least 10GB of hard drive space free, though more is always recommended for smooth and easy playing.
If players opt for the physical disc version as opposed to a digital download, they will need a DVD-ROM drive in order to play SimCity.
Players will need at least a 512 MB video card featuring either an nVidia 7800 or better, an AMD chipset of at least an ATI Radeon HD 2x00 or better, or an Intel Series 4 integrated graphics or better.
***NOTE: All the above-mentioned must also have a minimum of 256MB of on-board RAM and Shader 3.0 or better support.
It is essential to the game’s performance and stability that the latest possible drivers for your video card are installed at all times. Maintaining diligence toward your drivers will allow you to maximize on the SimCity experience.
