Can my computer handle NL?

I have an Athlon 1.3 gig, with .5 gig of RAM which also supports the
video card (I don't know what I'm talking about here; my husband just
supplied me with all this data.) I am running Sims 2 pretty well, and
don't have (and probably won't get) University. Would Nightlife just
run achingly slow for me? If so, what would I need to upgrade?

Also, I haven't seen NL available on a DVD, as Sims 2 was. Perhaps as
an EP it only needs to be on a CD?

I am not very computer literate; please forgive me. :-)

Gamespot has a hardware test for Nightlife... I don't remember the
link though. It's somewhere up the screen, I dont think the messages
have expired yet. Called nightlife hardware test or something like
that.

I'm running it on the computer in the back room that has a PIII 1 GB CPU and
an old GeForce 4 Ti4200 with 512 MB Ram. It plays fine, if I turn off the
see neighbor feature. Everything takes forever to load with all my custom
stuff. Later, I will move it to the main computer but need to do a few
things to it first.

I have almost same specs and I'd say you have no worries. In fact NL seems
to run better and load faster.
