Okay I found a perfect answer for your question. Click the link below which should get to Gamespot.com and the Oblivion page.

Now there's an icon that says "Can you run it?" on the right side of the Title and click that. Activate the ActiveX Control and run the program to automatically install the software. This will scan your pc and shows the chart on wether you get the minimum recommendations and also tells you or recommends an ugrade for your system to be able to play the game you selected.

It's a pretty good tool.

Before you buy the game, first try the demo. Okay I understand you don't have an internet so get someone who has or go to the library and download the demo game. Then install that demo and see if your system is capable of playing it at low settings. :)

I cant really do that but I am almost 100% sure I can run it I run Unreal 2004 on 1600x1200 with everything all the way up and it runs just fine the one thing that I am going to want to buy (which will be in a month) is some new ram Im buying a gig more. From what I hear the r9700 pro can run it and I can oc my 2400+ to a 2800+ if I need to. I do have the nforce 2 motherboard. I know I know I need to upgrade so bad but I think Im going to wait for the AMD sale that is going to happen this year. Anyway I will tell you all how it worked since my roommate when out and got it to day while Im at work. I find it funny though that if you turn 2004 all the way up with 1600x1200 it screems "Holy SH*T" really loud :p

Where do you find the game demo? I've been trying to find it but I don't have much time on my hands to search.

On second thought there buddy, I think there isn't a demo for it at least the one for pc version. I'm very sorry for saying to get the demo that turns out I can't find it. Do you have someone you know that might happen to own Oblivion? Anyways here's the requirements for the game. :)

Are you planning to upgrade your system? I would be a big help if you do so. With your current system the cpu is not enough to play the game with decent frame rates that is.
