Big hit in Oblivion performance.

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I recently got my 20" Widescreen and when I play oblivion I've taken a big performance hit. It sucks cause now everyone in the game looks like crap. thier faces look crapy and when i'm fighting more than a few people, my fps goes relly low. I wish i had the money to upgrade. with my crt, i was able to run it with 6x AA and all the other setting on high. but i've had to lower everything now that i've got it in widescreen. I'm going to try and lower the ressolution and see if that helps.

I am sorry but unless you got a widescreen monitor with a 30mhz refresh rate and your using Vsync than i dont see how changing monitor affects your gameplay. What are the specs and refresh rate on your monitor? Changing monitors should have very little to do as far as affecting preformance unless your using Vsync, or a high resolution. I have a 26 in widescreen monitor and I run oblivion just as good on that as I do my other 21in CRT. I think you might wanna try and turn off Vsync

He had to up the resolution to fit the monitor, that is why it's harder on the system.

I think the refresh rate is at 60Hz. i think... I'll check when i get home... And as far as i understand when games run at higher resolutions the tend to need more from ones system. So i'm going to lower it.

I would have thought with a widescreen you would lower the resolution since these days most people I know with CRT's run res at 1600x1200 and the standard LCD has a max of 1280x1024. I misunderstood.
post #6 of 15
I have that same monitor as you...What res are you running it in...if it is 1024X768 then that is the reason for it looking bad as far as resolution goes...With a LCD widescreen monitor you need to run it at the recommended res which is 1650X1024 I believe...Which if you do not have a vid card to support that then you could be looking at some problems..

If you got a big monitor, you need a fairly powerful gfx card to use it. My 6200 has the option of running 2x 21" monitors, but if i did and i tryed to play a game, i'd literally get 0fps.

Greatness; a bigger monitor wasnt a big deal for you because you have a high end gfx card.

Well, I set the game to 1680 x 1050, just to see what happens and it works fine. I haven't done anything yet in the game to really test to make sure everytihng is fine as far as fighting and stuff like that goes to see if I lose any performance.
