Does this video card work with Sims 2?

Yes and it will run the Sims 3 as well. To what extent/quality level i dont know but all the women and their friends around me play the game and the Sims 2 plays on the older Intel intergrated GPU while Sims 3 has the ability to have higher settings enabled if you have the GPU power. I would expect the 4500HD to give it a decent showing. The Wifes best friend has it running with that GPU (both sims 2 + 3)but i havent actually seen it run myself.

The Sims 3 isn't to bad actually. I've played it on my rig, and can average 100FPS or more in many situations (this with a GTX260 @ 1920x1080 of course).

At lower resolution, you should be able to get by with the 4500HD.

I have this Intel card, I think it came with the new processor and the graphics for my game (sims 2) suck. There are a lot of settings (attributes, values etc) and I have no clue what any of them mean, does anyone know the optimal setting for clear graphics in the game? This is worse than my radeon 9600 which I thought I was upgrading when I got this core duo processor. :cry: 
I really want to be able to take clear screenshots.
