Hey people. Im going to need to upgrade some part of my computer as i am unable to play a game (specifically Oblivion) without getting a really bad frame rate (and i mean literally like 3f/s). I have to turn all graphics options down to get any sort of gameplay. I was surprised as i thought my processor was quite capable of running new games and i have plenty of memory. But its could be that my graphics card is not up to scratch, or my motherboard, i just dont know! Here are my main specs,

CPU Type Unknown, 2884 MHz (7 x 412)
Motherboard Name Unknown
Motherboard Chipset Intel Lakeport-G i945G
System Memory 2048 MB (DDR2 SDRAM)
BIOS Type AMI (11/27/06)

what do you expect i should upgrade out of that for better gaming performance? i've got about £200 max.
