I'm thinking about getting a new computer and I'm wondering if the more expensive one is worth it?

I've narrowed it down to:
Dell - Inspiron Desktop - 8GB Memory - 1TB Hard Drive $450
Asus - Essentio Desktop - 16GB Memory - 2TB Hard Drive $930
I'll be using my computer mostly for the sims so the only extreme differences is the turbo boost, RAM, and the hard drive size. Is the asus computer really worth almost $500 more? My cousin said that the turbo boost on the processor speed made a big difference but I'm still not sure. I don't need a new monitor since I just recently got a new one also.

16 GB's of RAM is not yet necessary for any games. Especially not The Sims. You only need 16 GB's of RAM for something like 3D modelling with thousands of layers. That being said, it's nice to be future proof. Having a big HDD is obviously also nice, and having a good processor and a good graphics card is vital for gaming.

Turbo boost helps greatly on the speed. Even with a good graphics card, it is nothing without an equally fast processor.
