Hello atong and welcome to G2G!

With that kind of money you could get anything up to Nvidia 6800 series card or ATI equivalent.

Oblivion requires super cards to run high, I have a X800GTO and Oblivion runs at Medium (at the max before I dip below 20 FPS). I'm guessing you could look at the X800XT (higher than my GTO) but for now, wait until DX10 comes out and get a new card then.
