Ever heard of saving your pennies and buying your own computer? Anyway you don't need a super modern computer for this game -
it just helps.

Actually, it is quite possible to run it on a lower specification than the one Maxis supplies. It just won't be very nice to play.

If you could play it, you would understand why the game needs a supercomputer. I bought a new computer just before the game came out. My old one had a hard time with Sims 1. Listen, it will be a while before Sims 2 is a really good game to play. There is a bit left to be desired. It needs more objects, wallpaper and floors. The stuff is mostly boring right now. The flowers look really bad. The big difference is Sims 2 is more 3D. You can change your viewing angle so that it feels like you are standing in a house or lot and the people look 3D. I keep going back to my Sims 1 while I wait for new things to be recolored and created.
