I get 35-85fps but the framerate fluctuates wildly once you get into an area with lots of buildings, and regardless of the frame rate the mouse lags so much that aiming is very difficult. I just ended up waiting until VATS was available because I couldn't hit anything due to mouse lag.

That is the reason I can't stand playing Oblivion any more and its enough to completely put me off Fallout 3 for the time being. Gamebryo strikes again...
How this Oblivion mod got perfect reviews is beyond me. Well, we saw the same happen with Oblivion when it was released: perfect reviews all over, fanboys raving, the truth being realized and admitted only months/years later. The truth is, Gamebryo ruined every Bethesda game and it also ruined this one.

BTW check out this one, much more accurate account of the game:
Intel E8400 C2D 3Ghz @ 3.6Ghz ---> ASUS P5Q Pro <--- 2x2GB PATRIOT DDR2 800Mhz
PALIT Sonic HD4850 1GB DDR3 <---> BENQ FP241W 24" LCD
M-AUDIO FireWire 410 <---> Logitech Z-5400 5.1 THX
All MMO's are now baby-school weak. The only good MMO's make your eyes bleed and force you to eat glass. In my day we had to walk uphill in the snow 5 miles *JUST* to log in.
