we still don't know what type of hardware will be required to run Oblivion smoothly on a PC but it's probably a fact that a lot of people right now are concerned about that their system might be too slow or lack certain other requirements.
What I thought is that anyone who wants to get some advices could post some informations about his system in this thread - only the main hardware-components, please - and then we could try to help that person with deciding what components need an upgrade - or if a completely new system is needed wink.gif

in case nobody is against it I'd like to start:

Mainboard: Capable of AMD Athlon XP
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2600+
GFX: Nvidia GeForce FX 5900XT (128MB)
RAM: 512 MB DDR RAM

I think before Oblivion is released I'll buy a Mainboard that is capable of an AMD 64-Processor. That would also mean I'd have to buy new RAM. And I'd also like to buy a new graphic-card. What do you guys think?

Heh this is what I'm looking at, the regular xbox 360 without games and such is what, 299 or 399? I think that's a lot cheaper then getting the bundles for hundreds of dollars when the necessary video chip is probably a little over 200 dollars or even less. I mean the prices are outrageous.... I just want oblivion and maybe halo 3~

Hm, I'd say it's a little above average. The problem with the 6600GT is that it has only got 128MB, for Oblivion I'd suggest something with 256MB

Nah I want to , but it will be awhile.... as I have no cash on me and my parent's already are upset about gas prices. I'm buying Oblivion for both Xbox 360 and PC even if I don't have the proper stuff to play them yet tongue.gif

I mean come on the PC almost always has the best graphicxzors and the construction set is a marvelous tool tongue.gif

The CPU seems to be ok but I'd suggest more RAM and especially a newer graphic card wink.gif

Only updating the drivers will unfortunately not help a lot, I fear that a newer card with 256MB will be needed

hm, I guess it's a 128mb-card. Before buying a new one it's very important to read a lot of tests and reviews, thus you can be sure that the one you're gonna buy is a good one smile.gif
