Will this rig run the Sims 3?

Don't really have a lot of time to put this together, but my girlfriend wants me to build her a computer capable of running the sims 3 without frustration. how will this hold up? (on a budget.. cheap for a reason :P)

MSI 785GTM-E45 Motherboard
AMD Athlon II X2 255 Dual Core Processor
Ultra 2048MB PC5400 DDR2 667MHz Memory
Western Digital WD5000AAKS Caviar Blue Hard Drive
MSI DH-24AAS-17 Internal DVD Writer
Power Up Mid-T w/450w PSU
ATI Radeon x1300 Video Card

Thoughts? Any upgrade you would suggest that would be cheap but better?
I think I could go for an AMD Athlon II X4 620 but that would be almost $40 more. Would it be worth it purely to play the sims 3 (and similar games)
