    It shouldn't have much trouble with the Sims series of games, I wouldn't expect it to run Tomb Raider very well at all though.

    you will be able to run it, but not in ultra settings.

    My friend has as HD7950 graphics card and he's able to max it 60fps and still experiences lag in sometimes (maybe because he plays in ultra? idk.)

    But imo it's not worth getting those games if you don't have a dedicated graphics card. By that I mean you should be able to run the game in medium/high setting minimum - that is similar to xbox 360/ps3 graphics.

    The Sims yes, Tomb Raider absolutely not.

    The processor and onboard graphics let it down, and the motherboard would need upgrading.

    The Sims 3 is very low demand specs-wise, I used to run it fine with maxed out settings on a Core 2 Duo. The CPU in her laptop launched the year after the Sims 3 was released, so it should do a passable job at very least.

    Sims will run fine... I was talking about Tomb raider (2013) it wont run on those specs very well

    Agreed on Tomb Raider, I was just clarifying because the way you said "those games" implied that you though neither of them would run well :yep:

    Sims 3 should be fine - at low details, maybe medium tops as that game is a total ***** when it comes to efficiency. No chance for Tomb Raider though - you have an integrated graphics card, you won't really be able to run new games on it.
