Don't bother

Oblivion probably won't even install. You're in this category because you're really at the bottom end of things and almost certainly below its minimum requirements. You could try...but we're not advis... Read more

Don't bother

Your video card is a little better than the rest of the system, achieving a passable score. If you upgrade, you could keep your existing model. Everything else should have been in a skip five years ag... Read more

This score shouldn't be possible to achieve. I have it set to send me a message if anyone scores it. **NOTE** This category is almost always caused by a mistake in some of the questions. ... Read more

Don't bother

Although your processor is "capable", your memory and video card are not. If you can upgrade them, do so. Run the test over your intended upgrade and see. Read more

Low end

You managed a passable score with both processor and video. This is the sort of junk Dell were churning out in 2001, memory so awfully slow that it dragged the rest of the system down with it. Obl... Read more

This score shouldn't be possible to realistically achieve. I have it set to send me a message if anyone scores it. Essentially, you have a middling processor, a very strong video card and next... Read more

Don't bother

You have a fast processor... And that's about it. You have Ferrari wheels on a Volkswagen Polo and you're going nowhere fast. Solitaire perhaps, Oblivion no. **NOTE** This categor... Read more

Memory upgrade

Good enough video, good processor, either too slow or not enough memory. Sort that out and Oblivion will be your playground. Hint: Adding 512MB is cheap enough and any idiot who can wield a sc... Read more

Memory hog

You've got a lot of memory, but not a lot of anything else. If Oblivion will even run, it'll be very slow. **NOTE** This category is almost always caused by a mistake in some of the quest... Read more

Insufficient CPU

Memory and processor are passable, if not great, but you're lacking the CPU horsepower. Oblivion will run, but you'll need to put a lot of work in tweaking the "oblivion.ini" to knock qualit... Read more

Lousy Video

So near...and yet so far. Most laptops should fall into this category as do almost all of the cheaper junk that Dell, HP, Compaq vomit out. If you can coax Oblivion into running, you'll need to put a ... Read more

The Middle Ground

Most people considering Oblivion should fall into this category. You're not at the top of things, but neither are you at the bottom. Oblivion is a memory hog, but you seem to have at least 512MB. If y... Read more

Lacking video

Some laptops, and many desktops, fall into this. Your video card is either on-board or utterly pathetic. Everything else stacks up. If it'll play, it'll need to be at 640x480 with everything ... Read more

Looking good

You're not at the top of things, but neither are you at the bottom. Your processor and video card are certainly up to it, but you could pay a little attention to your memory. Oblivion is a me... Read more

Are you on a server?

You have a stack of memory...but no processor or video card worth mentioning. Most servers are configured like that... They ain't for games. **NOTE** This category is almost alwa... Read more

CPU Upgrade

Upgrade your processor, if you can. Your memory and video check out just fine, your processor doesn't. Additionally you'll need to be careful what mods you use. More mods is almost always a h... Read more

Video is onboard?

Most laptops and many off-the-shelf desktops fall into this. Your video card is either on-board or utterly pathetic (same thing, really). Everything else stacks up. If it'll play, it'll need ... Read more

Looking good

You're not at the top of things, but neither are you at the bottom. You have enough memory, and it seems to be fast enough, but your processor and video card score merely "average". Enough of... Read more

Looking good

You're not at the top of things (but you're damn close), since your processor is letting you down a little. As long as you're "fast enough", Oblivion will likely be limited by your video card...which,... Read more

Lacking video

Most laptops and many off-the-shelf desktops fall into this. Your machine was not meant for games. Word processing and spreadsheets, no problem. Internet use, easy. Games? No. Your video card... Read more

Memory: No problem Processor: Hell yes Video: Erm...well, it's nearly time for an upgrade anyway. You'll be fine with Oblivion, but don't expect antialising, anisotropic or high resol... Read more
