Hey there folks, I am comleatley new to all of this, so please bear with me. I have recently been tryin to play a game called oblivion on my pc. it loads ok but only runs at 4/5 frames per sec. i have updated my graphics driver for my nvidia fx 5500, i have bought an extra gig of ram but still no joy.this leaves me to think my processor may need changing, but i dont even know if i can. I have an AMD sempron 2800+. The mother boared accepts 462pin cpu but i cannot find these on pcworld website. are they out of date? Do i need a whole new computer???? Please help!!! Thankyou for your time.
Rob.

The FX5500 is the problem, you would need atleast a 6600 (GT if you can)or better x700 to play it well.
