Can I run this game at all the graphic sliders all the way to the right? When I enable the FPS readings, I get about 400fps at sim creation screen, but when the game actually starts i have fluctuations from 200-30. depending on how fast the things in the screen changes. Any way to get a stable fps?

Your CPU isn't the best. Tone the settings down a tad.

You should have 2GB RAM to play just base game plus some expansion.
Try low-medium setting. :)
If you want more expansions then you need more RAM
I guess 1-3 expansions 2GB 4-6 expansions 4GB 7-9 expansions 6GB 10 and more 8GB

No Intel HD 4000 has several problem report from forum.modthesims
It is too weak to play on high or several expansions.
If you insist on high it can crash your game sometimes.
But if you have just basegame plus some expansions then try medium setting :)

I have to say that im a bit disappointed with ea because I think they are forcing maxis to create expansions to make large money of it. Big fan of the series though, STOP MAKING EXPANSIONS AND MAKE SIMS 4 FOR HEAVENS SAKE
