Video card to run Oblivion when it comes out...

On yet another unrelated note, it looks like game console emulators will recieve an enormous boost from DX10. Traditionally, a console can achieve 'more' on 'older' hardware due to the simplicity of resource management, tailored hardware and software layout, near 0 compadability issues, and ultra high bandwidth between components. DX10 bring simplified resource management, and a more tailored hardware and software enviroment to PCs, allowing them to possibly double their potential output. This would allow console emulators
to run in an enviroment much closer to that of the system they are trying to emulate.
Sad news is that it will be a while before all this sinks in...
Getting back to Oblivion, it seems that the shadow effects take alot to process. Disabling personal shadows, shadows on grass (this one especialy), and canopy shadows should increase framerates by a good amount. Also, setting the shadow filltering to low will make them seem a bit sharper, but will do even more for performance.

Do you think i should just buy another 512mb of RAM?
More ram will boost performance for pretty much everything it would reduce load times. Well i can run oblivion fairly well on mostly high settings, the HDR wasnt as well dnoe as it should have been so i cant run HDR only bloom, dont have any AA on usually but can manage 2x sometimes, and thats at 1280x1024 on my x800 and a 7600GT is faster so it will be mostly high settings, the biggest killer is HDR and AA, if you run without those then it will manage high settings on everything else allright, when you turn on AA or HDR you will have to lower settings but those arent really as neccesary.
The reccomended specs(http://www.elderscro...blivion_faq.htm) say 1GB though?

how bad will oblivion run with a radeon 9550 256mb graphics card? I also have 1279 of ram.
it will run very choppy... On the absolute lowest it would be okay...

(BTW, How do I find out what wattage my power supply is? It doesn't say when I bought it or on any of the documentation.)
