My System Specs

Default

+1 for i3 / cheaper i5

Would definitely suggest getting a z77 board though for a drop-in upgrade down the line and usb3, pci-e3, TRIM, etc

Alternatively, looked second-hand? Much value to be had buying someone else's greatest from the last gen.

Really for his uses, make sure you squeeze in an SSD as it will make more difference than the processor or GPU (unless sim city has changed allot)
It doesn't have to be top end by any means but it will lift any budget rig to really snappy and make happy users.
