I guess I don't know what T&I is supposed to mean.

You don't, by chance, mean SLI, do you?

If I'm way offbase, just chalk it up to my ignorance :thumbsup:. But give me a clue as to what you are referring to.

on the box for system requirements for The Sims 2 (all expansions and stuff packs) have this:

A T&L-capable video card with at least 32 MB of video RAM.

and a note on the bottom:

NOTE: If you have a non-T&L capable video card, such as Intel Extreme Graphics, then you need at least a 2.4 GHz processor.

i don't see the GeeForce card listed on the sims 2 box.

The Nvidia 8500 is a newer style Graphics card and almost certainly supports T&L. I am trying to get into Nvidia but their site is undergoing maintenance. One question would be whether or not your computer supports PCI-E or AGP.
