Don't think so. Most dos games need to run full screen to work correctly.

The sims is a windows game, and to play old dosgames you should just download dosbox. It's explained in the get games to work section.

You don't need to buy a new one. Check out the Salvation Army or a local Thrift store. The 17" Acer CRT I'm looking at right now cost me $2.50 at the Sally Ann. And I picked it up out of a jungle of nice 15" moniters.
