Does The Sims 2 Benefit the SLi ability?

I notice that whenever I have my SLi enabled, there's no real difference in gameplay with it being turned off.

  1. Though nVidia has an SLI profile for it I doubt that it really benefits from SLI (unless the rest of your system is a real dog?). It runs just fine with my old ATI X800XL. I suspect the game is more CPU and memory intensive than graphics since I got a real boost in performance when I went from 1GB to 2GB.
  2. Well, that explains it. Yes, the game is more dependant on processor, even more so than RAM. I have 2GB's though. My processor is a X2 3800 AMD. I was just wondering.

    Thanks :D
  3. woah i jus noticed this thread is 2 years old
    anyways

    i got a new rig a few weeks back and i have 2 8600gt graphics cards from Gigabyte and i have an AMD athloon 64 X2 4000+ and the other day when i played the Sims 2 my screen went blue and a message came up aying that there was an error and the thing restarted. i tried playing the sims 2 a few more times but it crashed again.
