You will be fine, the requirements for the game is a 800mhz processor and only a 32mb of dedicated video memory.

The Sims 2 should run fine on an Intel HD 4000. I wouldn't expect high detail settings, but it should be playable.

According to the system requirements (on the Sims 2 box, not the Internet, delta5) The Sims 2 requires a Radeon 8500/Geforce 2 GTS or better (Radeon 9600 or Geforce 6200 on Vista or 7).

If she is willing to play medium(assuming the screen resolution is not too high) with no AA, it should still be "playable".

Sims 3 stressed my old 6850 build. The more items, the larger the lot, the more the Sims 3 is going to stress your computer. You might get away with dedicated graphics at medium settings but you'll see lag when speeding the game time to the max.

Sims 3 isn't that demanding anyways... I used to run it on a cheapy $250 laptop with a Celeron, 2GB of RAM and Intel HD Graphics 3000 and was able to pull off about 25fps most of the time. And you don't really need high fps for those types of games.

I agree because someone I know plays on an i3 with Intel HD Graphics 3000 and it runs decent for them.
