Default Just got done drooling figured I would post

Hey everyone, as some of you may know I was getting the EVGA 8800gts 640mb along with a new 20 inch widescreen acer monitor... All I can say is WOOOOOOOOOOOOW ITS FREAKING AWSOME!!! I also orderd oblivion and its expansion the shivering isles, I havent installed the expansion but I did install oblivion, I am able to set everything to max and there is no noticible lag at all! and I have been in some of the larger seens. how can I view how many frames per second I am actualy getting?

Anyways I am truly happy!!!! it is a large card but its not too large, it fits in my case just fine! it is a great video card It may not stand up to the test of time but its great at the molment!!!


well thats that, I think I am going to go drool over it! lol










P.S. TO anyone who has played Oblivion and the expancion question 1 what mods ect do you reccomend, and 2 What level should i be before i go to the shivering isles?

The thing about oblivion is that the creatures level with you... so the higher level you are the harder they get. So it dosen't really matter when you start shiverling ilse.

Ooh mods for oblivion. I highly recommend one of the overhaul texture packs, retextures pretty much everything and looks amazing. google "qarls texture pack". Also, the Unique Landscapes mods are definitely worth a look. enjoy!
