That's what I did [same situation as you]. I have yet to play it though.

Yes, not even a question. But have a look around for some of the graphic mods to update the look. There's a huge modding community that, as afar as I know are still building mods and content for the game.

Where can I find these mods?

YES, you have not really played until you have played Morrowind. Most consider it the best TES game. I personally prefer oblivion but I admit Morrowind has something very special that only the Shivering isles comes close to achieving. Its just so immersive it draws you in in ways no TES game has done before or since.

Morrowinds only down side is the combatg system sucks.

I don't recommend using Nexus Mod Manager for Morrowind, btw. Many mods aren't set up for it. Look into Wrye Mash, there's a bit of a learning curve, but it's worth it. Also get the Morrowind Code Patch. Fixes a myriad of issues with the game.

More helpful info for modding Morrowind can be found here:

Stabbykitteh is right, but google Morrowind sound and graphics overhaul. It's a package of mods that'll bring the look of the game up to a modernish look. A bit of a large download but it is an installer so does most of the work for you. It's even got a few bug fixes and patches included to get you up and running pretty quickly.
Oh and check out Tamriel Rebuilt. One of the largest community projects ever for Morrowind.

Yes. However I recommend using graphical enhancement mods with it. It's a bit aged now.

One more tip:

If you're going to mod Morrowind, do yourself a favor and install it outside your Program Files folder. Morrowind and UAC don't get along at all. You can avoid issues with a bunch of different mods (MGE, Wrye Mash, Morrowind Code Patch, FPS Optimiser) just by doing that one thing.

Enjoy the game.

Best game ever! Played it for three or four years!

Yes. Once you've bought it, buy it again...just to be safe.

I'd ignore the graphical mods, really. Not only this opens the door to the infamous Morrowind Modding Spree (you never play the game because you always stop to add more mods), but you get used to the "dated" look soon after you start playing, because it all looks very consistent and you get immersed in the world. I played a little with graphical enhancements and suddenly there were realistic textures slapped on un-realistic models. Total uncanny valley, only the undead should look like walking corpses. Also some textures don't fit and it takes you out of the game.

Only mods I recommended to a beginner are the Code Patch and the unofficial patch, which really just fix bugs and engine problems.

No real discussion here mate, you should get it. I thankfully have the Collector's Edition to Morrowind and Oblivion. Was a bit late on getting it for Skyrim though. Really want the Collector's Edition for all three. Also in terms of mods, stick with some of the official mods until after your first play through. I learned that the hard way.

Buy Morrowind, it's a great game.

Also, I don't know what everyone is talking about when they say you need to download loads of mods, there is only one mod you will EVER need for Morrowind.

^^ MGSO looks awesome, but some people like to pick and choose their own mix.
Each to their own. Choices are good is all I'm saying.
