How does the PC version compare to the PS3 and XBox 360 versions?

Is this version better?

You can download a whole bunch of great mods that not only extend the life-span of this game but also tweak the game-play and other features to make Oblivion better than the console versions by a mile. So, yes. You did good.

Congratulations, you just bought 10+ games for the price of 1.

1: Oblivion
2: Integration: The Stranded Light 80+ quests, 5 guilds, lore correct, race/sex/action recognition, choices and Consequences, multiple solutions, well developed characters, a new city, a very long in depth and realistic romance. Not that almost all of these are things missing from Oblivion itself.
Integration, and many other quest mods can be found here:

3:FCOM for a vastly different game with more enemies, more items, and a lot more challenge. Kind of complicated though, probably best to start with something like OOO instead:

4: Nehrim, a total conversion in a completely different world.

5: Deadly Reflex, Unnecessary Violence, or Duke Patrick's mods. For the epic hack and slash combat type game.

6: The sex game.... yeah there are a number of mods for this.

7: Unique landscapes, immersive interiors, illumination withen, countless other graphical and location mods. For the calm atmospheric walk around and look at pretty stuff games.

8 "The Sims" game... There are many options for immersion mods that require you to drink, eat, sleep, bathe, etc.

9: Survival horror game. There's 1 zombie survival mod, and many "haunted mansion", "scary quest", etc. type stuff.

10: The "Barbie" game. Make your character look all pretty with race/cosmetic/graphics mods, get fancy clothes/armor with armor/clothes mods, and then go do whatever while looking Faabulous!

11+: whatever you want.

Truth is, I could have made all 10 of those just quest mods, but I wanted to diversify it a bit. You can find most mods on tesnexus.com

If a game has mods and doesn't require a constant internet connection, the PC version will always be better than console if your PC can run it.

I bought this Fallout 3 & Oblivion Double Pack though.

Anyone else's computer only strong enough to handle the minimum sytem requirements?

It's ok, but it's very laggy when there's a crowded area or there a scene going on.

Ummm... if you're struggling to play Oblivion then you might have an even torrid time playing FO3.

What settings have you enabled? Shadows should turned off first and foremost if your PC can't handle the game, along with HDR or Bloom+AA. Draw distance should be lowered too.

If you really don't want to turn down the graphics settings, or still have trouble, you might want to look at http://tescosi.com/wiki/Stabilization_and_Optimization for some performance tips. The optimization mods mentioned might be helpful too. I'm trying Oblivion Stutter Remover and LowPoly Grass right now, and they seem to work well so far.

Yeah, OP. Now you can mod the game to make it, well, not awful.
