Oblivion on my pc

Well guys i thought of buying a new graph card but im a teen and dont make much money. So i got this old pc. Here are my specs: AMD Athlon 64 x2 4400+ (2 proccesors 2.31 ghz each)
1 GB DDR 2 RAM
nvidia 7300gt 256mb

So i wonder how would oblivion work on my pc on 1440x900 resolution. I need that resolution because my monitor is 19 inches. So which settings are best for my pc?

  1. Well, from the looks of it, you should be able to run it, but I'm sad to say that it'll probably only run at the lowest graphics settings, especially at that resolution. That's okay though, the game still looks pretty even at the lowest settings possible.

    Also, getting a new graphics card isn't going to do you much good. Your CPU will prevent it from running at its best. My suggestion would be to get an entirely new computer. PC Gamer has a running parts list for low-,mid-, and high-end machines that is updated each month. The low-end usually runs about $500, and is quite fast for the price. Hey, if you work hard enough, you'll reach that $500 in no time.

  2. Well ty for your reply! I tried playing it on mixed medium/low settings and it worked fine... I'll try to get a new pc to play some newer games. Thanks again.
  3. Glad I could help.
  4. Too bad it's school time so im very busy but im patient :)

    Of course a 4650 could play it on med-high with that resolution, and shouldn't be too much of an issue with your cpu.
  6. Yeah i thought of buying an hd 4670 but my psu isnt good enough... Though idk how to see which connector it has and how many amps it has...
  7. Oh btw can a nvidia 9800gt work on it because i find it at a bit lower price than the hd 4670?
  8. I would go with the 9800gt, but there will be issues with your psu, as the 9800 demands more power then a 4670.
  9. Well i dont know about that, maybe it would work well ill see but not now for a month or so maybe.

    Well both require a 400w power supply as the minimum.
    Get a decent psu that doesn't cost alot?
  11. I am currently playing Oblivion on max settings, you can compare my rig to yours.

    AMD 9950 X4 @2.6
    2 gig RAM
    7800 GT Graphics card
    Win 7 Ultimate

    I have an old 17" monitor and my resolution is @ 1024X768

    The game runs great for me. If money is tight look on craigslist or ebay. The 7800 GT goes for less than $50, but if you can get the 9800 GT go with that one.
