sounds like your pc/ laptop is not strong enough hun. i have a quite fast pc and mine is slow sometimes. i'm thinking of saving up for a good gaming pc. but it will cost me about 1,500.00 GBP thats about 2,475.91 USD it's going to take me sometime i think. Smile

Hmm...so Brian..I could send you...$2,500.00 to buy me a computer that would cost me over $2,500?!!!! Wow...the possibilities!!

Stevielee I would def take your Dad's suggestion of putting your game on your external hard drive. I'm not sure of the 'how to' play the game once it's on your external...my nephew does most of his games this way and has no problems playing.

Hey Stevielee, are there other things on your C drive that you can get rid of? Any old programs that you don't use, or anything else you can get rid of or put on your external? How large is your C drive?

I've definitely been in the position of having a full drive, but over the past couple of years I've severely limited what programs I install on C and how much crud is on it to keep it as free & clean as possible. Right now I'm at 254GB out of 500GB, and I really don't want to go above maybe 300GB or 350GB for this C drive (planning on getting a new larger one or a solid state sometime this summer).

You'd be shocked at how much free space you can clear up by getting rid of a few things here & there that you really don't need, or that you can store on an external (music, pics, games, programs, installers, yada yada). Good luck with it! Smile

I feel ya Cel on the 'cleaning up' your drive. I used to be so diligent in maintaining a pretty clean drive, but I've slacked off. I really need to give my comp a good spring cleaning! I still have tons of space but I don't want to look around one day and see that I've accumulated so much junk I can't see straight.

And Stevielee...I can't even get the ep until July 1st!! That is my birthday and it's been promised to me...KMN...I am going to be miserable until I own that game so it can drive me crazy with it's new glitches!! hand dance

Cece, my F drive is almost completely full, 10.1GB free of 1TB, and my poor old E drive has only 5GB left of 350GB (gawd do i need to replace that one, it's the oldest). And honestly, I don't know WHAT is taking up so much space lol! I mean I know everything that's on each, not malware or bugs or anything, just tons of crud that I need to put on the external or just get rid of. I must have 50 or 60+ gigs of Sims backups ALONE Shocked including TS2 backups (that I don't wanna get rid of b/c what if I play again...? lol)

I recently bought an external hard drive, its like heaven Big smile My comp has heaps more space left now.

I still want a new laptop though, I was checking my system specs and I only have a 3.6 WEI (windows experience index), but apparently my gaming graphics is superb but everything else is shat. Unimpressed.

Miss L that sucks about the WEI - mine was showing as a 1.0 just now! I re-ran it and it's back to a 5.9. Everything is a 7.5 except for the primary hard disk >.< Not sure what more they want out of it - just an average 7200 drive. And congrats on the external! They're getting bigger and cheaper these days which is AWESOMESAUCE b/c they used to be stoopid-expensive, and now we finally have one (which I have yet to finish filling up...)

Cece! You can have him AFTER the Finals -- Mavs in 6!!!!!!!!

Marking my calendar...May 6th...got it!!! happy *NEW*

On the external thing...I LOVE IT AND DON'T KNOW HOW I LIVED WITHOUT IT!!! What is this system thing you are all talking about? My nephew Kris will be here next week on leave and I want him to give my lappy a good once over.

And oh...the price of external are amazingly low...my sis told me when I needed a new one to let her know and she'd grab me one, 1Tb for under $40...you just can't beat that!! Thankfully I still have gobs of space on my external so I'm cool for now!
