Good folk of hexus,
I am in the market for a new base unit that will comfortably run Oblivion in 1280x1024 with all graphical whistles & bells enabled (full draw distance, distant lands, HDR, etc.) while never/rarely dropping below 30fps.
The rig will mostly be used for gaming, but sometimes for office applications or multimedia work. Budget for this is around £800-1000 mark lower is better! if possible.
* Graphics Card
* Hard Drive ~250Gb
* Possibly an aftermarket cooler
* DVD-RW Drive
Thanks in advance and I will try and respond to suggestions whenever possible.
EDIT: Forgot to add, I am willing to do some overclocking if necessary, but am by no means an expert and this needs to be taken into account.
