Ok, im in need of a new Graphics card, one that can play Oblivion 4 no problem, but i dont know what i need. I think i can spend up to about 200, more if need be. My friend Recomended a Radeon X1600 PCIe 512 MB
I also Dont know how to check if i have a pci hook up thing. Any ideas?
I haven't been very familiar with the Oblivion revolution, but if your speaking of The Elder Scrolls (the newest), your going to come up very short with an X1600 combined with an XP CPU. You may look into the X1900 series or GF 7900 series and beyond for your needs; although the XP will be significant bottleneck on these cards.

ive orderd a new card, GeForce 7800 GT
Ouch, Hate to tell ya, a 7800GT isn't that good for Oblivion. It will play it, but you could have done better. I had one and quickly upgraded to a X1800XT as ATI cards do way better than NVidia in Oblivion.
A X1950XT, X1950 pro or X1900GT would have been the way to go. Shoot, even a cheap X1650XT would have been better than a 7800GT for Oblivion. Plus these cards can all run FSAA + HDR at the same time, whereas with the 7800GT you have to choose one or the other.
