  1. How come when I launched Oblivion and went to "Options" it said this:

    I installed the videocard correctly, If you look above the text box you'll even see that my computer recognizes the videocard and I also installed the latest ATI video drivers

    Anyone know why it does that?

    Did you restart your computer?
    Did you disable onboard graphics?
    What's that say in the background in the circle? :D

    Yeah I always turn off my PC, And I did disable my onboard because I had a nVidia card in when I had the PC ( I couldnt stand Intel Onboard lol ) so I installed my PCI card then took it out when I got my ATI

    The background is a quote from one of my favorite shows, it says:

    I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those Deaf-Mutes.

    Make sure all of your nVidia drivers are gone from your computer.

    I would think so...patch it just in case. Don't you think the quality is a tad low :suspiciou?

    Yeah for a x1650xt AGP x8 card I was expecting atleast High settings, That card is like 300 numbers away from a very high-end card ;)
