Will your PC run Oblivion? #2

This can be very usefull for all of you out there that don't understand what Wester is talking about or don't know very much about computer components. It also has two tabs, one that shows you if you passed the minimum requirements and one that shows if you passed the recomended requirements.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion system requirements checker

Here'my corrected list :roll:

Courtesy of Notheking.
Outdated (these cards support shader model 1.x, which will not run the game)
Radeon 9100 IGP (integrated graphics)
Volari V3
Radeon 9250
GeForce 3
Radeon 9000
Radeon 9200
Matrox Parahelia 128
GeForce 3 Ti 200
Radeon 8500 & Radeon 9000pro
Radeon 9100
Radoen 9100pro
GeForce 3 Ti 500
GeForce 4 Ti


Very Low-end (these cards support what's necessary for Oblivion, but are very weak, and will likely provide unsatisfying performance even for modest gamers)
Intel GMA 900 Integrated graphics (chipset 915) (much better than the "Intel Extreme," but still somewhat below a GeForce FX 5200, and perform more like the "outdated" group)
GeForce FX 5200 & GeForce FX 5200 Ultra (different models have wildly varying performance)
GeForce PCX 5300
GeForce FX 5700LE
GeForce FX 5500
GeForce FX 5600
GeForce FX 5600 Ultra
S3 S8 256
GeForce 6100 IGP (integrated graphics)
Radeon Xpress 200 (integrated graphics)
GeForce FX 5700
GeForce PCX 5750
Radeon 9550
Radeon X300 HyperMemory
GeForce 6200 TurboCache
Radeon X600 HyperMemory
Radeon 9600SE & Radeon X300SE
Radeon X300 & Radeon 9600


Low-end (these cards might be considered weak, but they can hold their own, and for most people, should provide a sufficient Oblivion experience)
GeForce 6200
GeForce 6600LE
Volari V8 Duo
Radeon 9500
GeForce 6500
Volari V5 Ultra
Radeon X1300HyperMemory
Radeon 9600pro & Radeon X600pro
GeForce FX 5700ultra
Radeon 9600XT & Radeon X600XT
Radeon 9500pro
Geforce 7300GS


Mid-Range (these cards were/could've been considered top-end a few years ago, and are fairly powerful, and should be enough to fully enjoy Oblivion)
GeForce FX 5900XT
Radeon X1300 & All-in-Wonder 2006
GeForce FX 5800
Radeon 9700
GeForce FX 5900
GeForce PCX 5900
Radeon 9800
GeForce 6600
Radeon X1300pro
Radeon 9700pro
GeForce FX 5800ultra
Volari V8 Duo Ultra
GeForce FX 5900ultra
Radeon 9800pro
Radeon X700
GeForce FX 5950ultra
Radeon X700pro
GeForce 6800LE
GeForce 6800XT
GeForce 6800 (PCI-express version)
GeForce 6600GT
Radeon X800SE
Radeon 9800XT
Radeon X800GT & Radeon X800RX
Radeon X1600pro
Radeon X1600XT

High-End (some of these cards may be "outdated," but just about any given one is OVERKILL for almost any game out there, and will definitely be able to play Oblivion with all the settings enabled)
Radeon X800 & Radeon X800GTO 128MB
GeForce 6800 (AGP version)
Radeon X800GTO & Radeon X800GTO� (256MB version for either)

GeForce 6800GS (AGP version)
Radeon X800pro
GeForce 6800GS (PCI-express version)
Radeon X850pro
GeForce 6800GT
Radeon X800GTO 16
Radeon X800XL
GeForce 6800ultra
Radeon X800XT
Radeon X850XT
Geforce 7600GT
GeForce 7800GS (AGP version; preliminary ranking)
Radeon X800XT Platinum Edition
Radeon X850XT Platinum Edition


OMGWTFBBQ! (these cards are outrageous; they are rather expensive, but insanely powerful. Note that I cannot guarantee perfect accuracy of this ranking, but rest assured, all of them are more than overkill for this game)
Evga 7800GS Superclock (490Mhz core)
Radeon X1800XL
GeForce 7800GT
GeForce 7800GTX
Radeon X1800XT
GeForce 7800GTX 512
Radeon X1800XT Platinum Edition (preliminary ranking; based on results from BIOS flashes for the plain X1800XT)
Radeon X1900 All-in-Wonder
Radeon X1900XT
Radeon X1900XTX
Geforce 7900GTX
Geforce 7900GT
The guys at the official forums who made this list dosent know anything about graphics cards. They think that the X1600pro was a high range card even thou the 6600GT outperforms it, and the 6600GT where put in the mid-range section, :? They are also talking about a 7800GS PCI Express version, that's mumbo jumbo, there is and wont be a PCI express version of this card.

Just scroll down in the list and select Oblivion, this program might also be good to try since it rate your compnents, if you are thinking of upgrading your PC this might tell you what you need to upgrade.

Enjoy :)

This is topic #2, I thought it would be a good idea to continue to discuss this since a lot of people are worried about if their computer will be able to run Oblivion or not.

If you have any hardware related questions, post them here! If you are going to upgrade your computer for example, and want some advice just ask! Hopefully Wester will show up and help you guys out.


Here's my current specs:

Amd Athlon 64 3800+
1024Mb Ram
Soundblaster Audigy
120Gb S-ata harddrive
6600GT


I used to have a 7800GTX but something was wrong with it so I had to return it, still waiting for answers :( I'll hopefully get it back before Oblivion is released, but I guess that the 6600GT will do it's job since it's über-overclocked to 600 Mhz/1300 mhz, but serously...I want my 7800GTX!

Awesome dude! Can you imagine how much money AMD/Intel, Nvidia/Ati earn because of the release of a hardware demaning game such as Oblivion?

Oh, and welcome ot the forums Ray 8)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814102428

will this video card be good enough? mine right now is ok but im wondering how big of an upgrade i am going to have to make, and i would prefer to nothave to spend too much money, and this one would be in my range. I can probably go up to $200, but lower than that would be prefferable. leme know if you have any other suggestions
