Tell me, how bad a frame hit do you take? And do you take it all the
time, or just in a flashing disco with thirty sweaty, dancing sims? ;-)

Does having other bits of the neighborhood outside your house impact
frames at all?

Thx.

I ordered a ATI Radeon 9800 PRO just because I thought Nightlife would be a
good excuse to get it. My 9550 works fine with Uni, but I'm building my own
DVR (digital video recorder) and decided that I should upgrade my video card
for Nightlife, and retire my 9550 to a life to a life of TV in another
computer. The 9550 is more than adequate for regular TV. I use it with my
video editing.

My game should (should) arrive today or tomorrow, and I'll know just how
much a drag on my system it is. My new video card doesn't arrive until
Friday. I may not notice any improvement, but I was going to have to get a
new video card anyway, so I thought it would be a great excuse.

with flashing lights like in discos or where there are many people like
bowling alleys.As for the neighborhood,it doesn't change a thing.
Anyway,just seeing the neighborhood is something in itself...

Undoubtedly it does, but I don't think the impact is quite so
substantial, maybe if you have REALLY detailed and large number of
lots around it. But you can turn down the neighborhood detail.

Well, that's the card I already have. Good card. But the game is
getting to the point where it can tax even fairly good equipment. At
some point I will upgrade--I can now get a computer that's twice as
powerful as mine for half what I paid three years ago--but don't have
the time or the funds to go serious computer shopping at the moment.
