Here are the min requirements: http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Oblivion:Sy...m_Requirements
I'm skeptical of your graphics card being up to the task, but I can't say for sure. Oblivion can be a pretty heavy game. That said, there is also Oldblivion (http://www.oldblivion.com/) which is supposed to help it run on lesser systems.

Edit: actually, reading the min requirements page, it says oblivion should be playable on low settings with the Intel GMA X3100 GPUs -- I'm not sure if yours falls under this category.

Post is a bit old I realize, however you can also just go to the System Requirements Lab which will install a small utility that allows them to scan your hardware, and they will produce a report letting you know if you can run it or not. Very handy site.

I know about it, but i don't trust it anymore, it's not all accuate. Like, it said i met the lowest system requirments for CoD 4 and then i got it and it didn't work was getting about 10 fps so i tend to ask ppl on steam now

On what settings did you get 10 fps on CoD 4?

The Intel HD 3000 is relatively new and should be able to play both CoD4 and Oblivion easily.

1)go to the start menu
2)search & run msinfo32
3)click components-->display
4)show us what it says in the window

LovelessXDGamer your computer is about half as powerful as a jack in the box but you should be able to run Oblivion just fine because it's an old game.
