Graphics Card Recomendation for Oblivion game

  Killo Bite 15:32 25 Jan 2008

Friends wife has asked if I can find which Graphics card would be ideal or decent to play a Game called Oblivion, the box recomends a Minimum Specification of Nvidia GF6800 but how many MB's ? I ask myself.

personally I would think a 256 GF7300GT but any Gamers here I would like your advice as games isn't my strong point.

cheers all

Use this comparative tool click here

Select any two cards you are interested in and the benchmarks for Oblivion.

As a quick check I looked at the 256Mb 7300GT and at 1024x768 resolution it scored a miserable 4 frames per second.

Even by todays standards Oblivion is a demanding will need to set yor sights much higher.

is it agp or pci-e? and what sort of budget has she got?

if it's a pci slot think the 8600 would be bit better this 1 is £100 but there others

the 8800gt has been getting good reveiws and really good performance for the price but its about £200

if its agp i would think this would be sufficient

be better performance than the 7300.

also what size / type monitor she using? as the amount of mb on the card only really helps in biger resolutions

hope this helps :)
