Default Which is better for oblivion(gfx card)

nVidia fx 5500 256mb VC
ATI Radeon 9600xt 256mb VC

They say Evil Prevails when good men fail to act.
What they should say is "Evil Prevails."

i just upgraded from a 9600xt....it should be able to play on mid settings w/ oblivion. I did have a problem with the colors being washed out but i think thats b/c i didn't update my video drivers on a regular basis like i should have.

But the 9600xt is the best of the two for gaming.

Get the 9600xt and download Old Oblivion
The patch will maximize the game to run on older video hardware like that card so you can turn the settings up higher.
