Default The Specs of this computer...

I'm thinking of buying the following PC:

Specification

Intel Core i7 950 Processor - 3.06GHz NOW 4GHz+
Corsair H50 Water Cooling
6GB Corsair XMS 3 Memory
Asus P6X58D-E Motherboard
Corsair 600CX Power Supply
Seagate 500GB SATAII Ultra Fast Hard Disk
Gainward Geforce GTS 450 "Goes Like Hell" 1024MB Overclocked Performance Graphics
Ultra Fast Samsung DVDRW
7.1 High Definition Surround Sound
10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN
2x USB 3.0 Ports
8x USB 2.0 Ports
Firewire


As the idiot I am, I have little to no experience with gaming on a computer. I really would like to know if this computer is powerful enough to run oblivion on high with a playable framerate. Can anyone with experience help?

All I know is that "3.06GHz", "6GB Memory" and "1024MB VRAM" are good things to have!

Are you able to make changes to the hardware before buying?

If so, replace the GTS 450 with a GTX 460 (1GB 256-bit version)

One look at the specs, and it's clear -

This computer definitely needs more Neytiri.

Oh and, Lyra - you will definitely be able to run Oblivion in any way whatsoever with that hardware

Heck, you should even be able to run TESV when it arrives next November

Yes... oblivion. it will run.

However, the GPU is the limiting factor. I'd get a GTX570, it's the sweet spot for price/performance at the moment.

That will run anything that's out at the moment on maximum, but I second the advice to upgrade the GPU if you want to future proof it more

That computer should be more than enough. Never played Oblivion before, but I did buy a gaming computer two years ago which had half those specs and it has had more than enough power to run what I play.
