and the highest my screen resolution will go up to is 800x600

You will need a dedicated GPU to run The Sims 3. The Sims 3 actually requires a descent graphics card to run at a good frame rate.

Well, you do have a graphics card... sort of....

Beginning with the 2nd generation Sandy Bridge CPU Intel has integrated a graphics core inside the CPU. Your CPU has the Intel HD 2000. It's good enough to do basic things like watching video, but when it comes to games it is not good at all. I think you found that out yourself.

Anyway, you need to buy a graphics card to play the Sims 3.
