    Oblivion was never made for Mac OS X. So there's no possible way you could be playing it that way.

    It could be a cider port? I've heard of one floating around. Not sure how well it would run, but I'd messed around w/ Oblivion in bootcamp on my MacBook w/ similar specs and it didn't have much issue. Sorry this isn't much help but IF it is a Cider port, it's hard to say, usually they won't run as well but decent. You prob will have to turn down a few things.. but why not just try it =)

    *edit* re-read what exactly you're asking lol

    I would turn off all shadows, anti-aliasing for sure, water detail, HDR, specular, and lower fade for most of those above. I love draw distance though esp for a game like that so if you can sacrifice a few things for max draw I would. Also lower resolution will help.
