    As for the sceenshot, they are real ingame screenshot, they havn't been modded or anything (however , you'll need a PCmoster to run it at such detailed level)

    yeah, there's more than a couple of fans here!
    Morrowind was my first TES game, heard all the comparisons in the nwn forum and had to check it out. I love such an enormous and open-ended world to explore, and so pretty! Really looking forward to Oblivion, and dreading it too (it's effect on my real life)!

    Oh, yes! We have more than a few posts and threads here about OBLIVION. :)

    Morrowind was my first TES game as well. I also enjoyed Tribunal and BloodMoon.

    Can't wait to see how OBLIVION performs on my system and to get into the story.

    I've been playing TES since Arena. I have more hours in Arena that any other game i've ever played. Still didn't get close to beating it tough.

    Oblivion Test

    Well I knew this anyways but my video card and cpu failed for the recommended but everything else is fine. I'm not gonna get a new cpu until i get a new motherboard so that is a no go. The videocard is pretty much the same. For the CPU I can always overclock to 3.0+ since I have watercooling. I think the max for this cpu is 3.6 GHz but since its a prescott its gets extremely hot fast so I dont want to go to high. But it this cpu blows I have a 2.4c GHz backup. I can overclock my videocard too, I think I got it to 630 before it became unstable.
    The only thing holding me back is the heat factor.
    There recommendation on video cards: ATi X800+ or a Nvidia 6800+, I saw one at a store but it was 300 bucks, I read a review and I'm glad I saved my money. I'll keep this card I have and go as high as I can with the overclocking... Woohoo!! I smell something Cookin' and it aint in the kitchen hahahah.

    My laptop misses the recommended setup by a little. It's got a 128MB x700 and 2ghz centrino. Do you guys think this will hinder me alot?

    I bet you can play it, it won't look like the screens, but it will play it. How much RAM? If you don't already have a gig, I wouldn't wait, cause with those specs, a gig will help out tremendously.

    I know I can play it, I was just wondering to what extent. I left my rig at home (amd 64 3800+, 6800GTx2 SLI, raptor, 1024 ddr400) so I have to make do with what I have here.

    It will probably be a method of trial and error until you get settings that suit that particular laptop configuration. Hopefully, you'll get settings that you can enjoy.
