I have had a 9800 Pro 128MB for a year or two now. Due to twins in my life, gaming has been a "bit" hard these days and I have become so out of touch with video cards its scary. I picked up Oblivion yesterday and it has recommended video card specs of X800/GeForce6800 and P4 3.0 or higher. Now is this BS marketing material, or is the 9800 Pro just outdated these days? The game did get choppy in its first battle, but did not have much time to play after that. I am not adverse to spending cash on a new card as I want quality video when playing games with the time I can scrape up. I am not going to spend 500 bucks, but would not be against a few hundred. Any recommend a good upgrade path that will last me a few more years? Also my system specs are P4 2.8 ghz and 2 gigs of ram. Not gonna bother upgrading the CPU as I think its the card that is my bottleneck right now. Is that true? Also is it really necessary to go down the PCI express route? Doing that would require a new mobo which I really would prefer not to do right now, but would if buying a non-pciE card is foolish. Thanks in advance.
