You really need to locate people who have your same idea of smoothness (or explain it in more detail). Personally, I'm perfectly happy running Oblivion on a (very outdated) amd3500+ (single core), ati9600pro 256mb, 2gig RAM on appropriate settings on a 15" CRT. Other Oblivion fans would claw their eyes out if exposed to this setup, but to me, it runs smoothly.Originally Posted by Celestial
You'd also probably get better feedback somewhere like motherboards.org. They have a specific forum for hardware recommendations and another for gaming.
