Is this computer a good choice for the sims 3?

Really looking at getting this desktop computer to replace my current one from 2005, and particularly looking for something that can be fast and run the sims 3+ all current/future expansions well.

HP Pavilion Desktop

2.8GHz 2nd Generation Intel Core i7-2600S processor; 8MB Cache

8GB system memory (2x4GB)

1.0TB hard drive

SuperMulti DVD Burner

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Radeon HD 6570 Graphics with 1GB DDR3 dedicated memory

6-speaker configurable audio with up to 5.1 surround sound capabilities

Connectivity options include 10/100 Ethernet LAN and Wireless LAN 802.11b/g/n

15-in-1 memory card reader

Ports include 6 x USB 2.0

Includes HP USB Keyboard and optical mouse

So, would this be a good choice for what I want?

    Your system specs are pretty hi-end

    You will definatly be able to run the game at some pretty good graphics settings

    ALOT of other games would also work on your computer that are new

    ...Sim City 5 :D

    A good burning software I recommend is Ashampoo Burning. It's 100% free and can be downloaded here:

    If you want to create a DVD that works on a common DVD player, you definitely need a burning software. Copying the files of the movie as is won't work (If you do so your DVD player will not be able to play the video/movie properly). Ashampoo is a good option for every "burning need". It's reliable and professional, It can be used both for CDs and DVDs and it's very easy to use.

    More than enough to be able to run Sims 3, pretty much every game. If you are just going to play Sims 3 and nothing else, maybe this computer might be a bit too much, I'm guessing the price on this is a bit high.

I even have correct a much greater powerful equipment to play video games one and it presently expenditures approximately $630 at NewEgg.
