  1. Can anyone list any recommended graphics cards in order to run Oblivion? I already have Radeon 9700 Pro and it lags the hell out of my computer, so can anyone list any fairy cheap (Under £200 $350) that will run Oblivion smoothly on a 1240x1024 resolution with the high texture etc?

    Windows XP Home S2
    I have a 2 x 512MB ram
    Intel P4 3.2 ghz

    If you can stretch if 30£, you can get this (7800GS), which is the best AGP card on the market. If not, you have it's little brother for 198 here.

    ATI's offerings are a bit less competitive, but might be better suited for Oblivion (due to their support of Bethesda). The previous top-end card X850XT comes in at 155. It's very fast, but doens't support SM3.0.
    Their fastest AGP offering that does is only about a 100, but doesn't perform near the X850XT, is the X1600 pro, which is the only 512Mb ram card linked here.

    I suggest looking at some reviews to see how they perform in different areas, and then going for the one closest to your req's...
