If you are going to be playing it at 1024x768 then get a x1950xt, 2gb of ram, and a Core 2 Duo or a 3700+(overclocking will be required). That setup will run Oblivion on 1024x768 at max settings with no problem.

Yea, if you WANT single core, try to snag a good stepping Sandy 3700+ and oc away to 3gHz, Malaziel has it right, but it still isnt gonna be under 700. Under 800 if you do some damn good shopping, probably.

PSU: SILVERSTONE SST-ST50EF ATX12V 500W $87.50

Total: $725.45

oh.. wait.. AMD forum. sorry

Replace the E6300 with an X2 4200+ and the mobo with an DFI INFINITY NF570-M2/G Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 MCP or similar mobo, and the price will be the same, but performance will be less

<getting links>
I am parting out a lot of my old rig for it, The Ram, Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard, HDD, DVD&CD-Roms, and Case.

Without GPU, $700 is feasible.

What do you think of my suggestion?

Without the HDD, DVD, and Case, I can easily afford that.

It'll be good enough for Oblivion, provided you add a good video card.

Oh, do spend like $50 for a Tuniq Tower or a Scythe Infinity or other good CPU cooler. You'll need it when you overclock that E6300 (which overclocks like mad!! 3.0 GHz should be fairly easy)

2.5GHz should be sufficient. From the $$$ I save on the HDD, Drives, and case I can afford a nice cooler. How Much do you think a CPU, Mobo, PSU, OS, RAM, and Cooler will run me?

If 2.5GHz is enough, then you can settle for a less advanced cooler. Updated rig:
