Hello,
I am new to PC gaming and I definitely do not have a gaming labtop. This is all I know:
operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Processor: Intel(R)core i3 cpu 2.53GHz
Memory:4096 MB
Chip Type: Intel(R) HD graphics core i3 (integrated, i think...) 1696MB
display:1366x768 32bit 60Hz
Also, can i run Morrowind? Thanks.

You may have compatibility problems with Morrowind because the game is older than Windows 7 and so they don't support each other. That said, there are various workarounds which you could likely employ for near flawless gaming (that's if you have a problem at all - having just googled some people don't.)

As for your playing Oblivion, you'll have difficulty. I believe it will run, but you'll need to significantly lower all your visual settings to get it playable, and even then your frames per second will be very low (20 maximum I'd say) which'll lead to choppy gameplay. The game won't look that great at all, but I think it will at least start.

Exactly which core i3 do you have? That can make a lot of difference.

If you have a 1st generation core i3 CPU like the 330m, then you have the Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics core which is not really meant for games.

The 2nd generation of core i3 like the 2310m (4 digits as opposed to 3 digits and always begins with the number "2") will have the Intel HD 3000 graphics core and a little better than the desktop Radeon HD 5450 video card; twice as powerful as the GMA 4500MHD. Better for gaming.
