Oblivion is hardly demanding.
A Radeon 3200 can be overclocked, when overclocked you can max Oblivion out at a 1024x768 resolution, provided of course your IGP (It's a GPU built into the motherboard) has Sideport memory.
Got a Radeon 3000 IGP in my secondary rig; overclocked the IGP to 1ghz and I can max Oblivion out and run Crysis on Medium at 1024x768.

However with that said... Even the lowest of low-end cards outperform the Radeon 3000/3100/3200/3300/4200/4250/4290 (They are all essentially the same performing parts just with different clock speeds.)

A cheap card like a Radeon 5450 would provide multiple times more performance.

But Oblivion demanding? Hardly.
You can run it on 10 year old Graphics cards with the assistance of Oldblivion.

Yeah, it's true, but you get a graphical quality sub-par to the quality of Morrowind itself, much less Oblivion. 

You're correct that Oblivion is hardly demanding, if you know how to maximize your card to oblivion's settings. In that aspect, there are a lot of Faqs online which help you set-up the Config file of Oblivion to that end.

But when you got tons of enhancement mods, Natural enviroments, graphical overhauls, texture enhancements, lighting enhancements and such, it can become extremely taxing for old graphic cards. 

My current laptop has a Geforce 9650 GT Go and it performs rather well on 1280x800 everything Max and with all mods installed, and it can also run Crysis at 1280x720 with High setting at over 30 FPS. The difference is, since it's a laptop, the suggestion you have made isn't viable. You can't overclock a laptop graphics card, if you don't want to risk serious overheat and massive battery consumption.

Around the Network

Prebuilt computers from the usual companies such as Gateway have shitty cooling units.

Gaming computers are usually customized with a better heatsink/fan or one of the more expensive model of gpu/cpu that comes with better cooling options.

If you open the side panel, you can peek at the gpu and see that the gpu is equiped with a tiny heatsink/fan. That is okay for light uses such as usual applications and web browsing that aren't graphical demanding.

The gpu are actually built to fail with the small heatsink/fan so that you have to upgrade or replace the unit in a few years.

 

Take sometime and play around with building a computer yourself. You'll learn a lot from that.

Just follow the manuals for all the wiring. It's really simple.



I don't mind this, I just hope they focus on the PC version first (and develop as they would a PC title). Diablo = PC for me.



Rockstar: Announce Bully 2 already and make gamers proud!

Kojima: Come out with Project S already!

This. If all else fails and you have a problem... post in the PC forum. I check it every couple days, as do many VGC users who can help you with specific problems or provide general recommendations.

Beyond that there are so many part guides and reviews out there that should make individual component selection easy. It's totally worth it to do yourself and not hard if you can follow instructions.

i suppose ill look into all of these points. I rarely mess with this kinda stuff. maybe i can force this card to do something like that.
