Hi Geeks,

I just got my hot off the press fresh copy of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion for my Dell Dimension 8300. I have 1.00 Gig of RAM installed, yet some time not too long ago, I was digging around and saw somewhere(no id ont remember where) that not the full gig was available, i think it was down to about half or a bit more. Now Oblivion recommends 1 full gig. of RAM. How can I clear up some of my RAM so it will dedicate to Oblivion?
Thanks Geeks and as always, Fight the good fight!

if you've got a gig of ram in the system y ou can't dedicate it to the game...as you still have to run windows...are you having issues with the game at all?

What it says is including the portion taken for windows and the other things that may be open when they test to get the requirements remember they also have windows running.

You can get more by using a memory defragger like the one in Tune up 2006 im trying it myself now.

I havent installed the game yet, I just wanted to make sure I didnt run into problems once I did run it thats all. I have heard alot about this Tune Up 2006, maybe Ill give that a shot and see what it does.

Its a handy piece of software certainly, good thing to have in the tool box doesnt do anything other software can do however it lays it all out nicely.
