What settings for me? preferably 60. Also, Sims 3 ran horribly on my computer even though I was well past the specs, this isn't going to be like that is it?

You can try it on low settings, but don't think you're going to get much better than 10 fps, maybe 20.. i'm not sure..

You can run it on max, your gpu is good enough and your cpu is a good gpu that would work in perfect conditions helped by 8 GB of Ram that you have..

You can try to play it fluently on low settings, because you have a good CPU, but you're using the onboard GPU, so you should not get great graphics quality while playing..

i don't think you would be able to upgrade a graphics card on your laptop, since you only have the gpu that comes with processor, i don't know your laptop, but ask somebody else that knows, if you can add a gpu to it. Either way i would always buy a desktop computer to play games instead of a laptop..

You can run the game, and it will run in medium high settings easily, or almost max. I would try to play it on max with your rig..
