My system specs:
Maximus V Formula
i5 3750k CPU(OC to 4.5ghz)
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU FAN
ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU II 4gb
Kingston HyperX Predator 8gb Kit(2x4) 2400mhz(running at 1333mhz)
Antec HCG 620W Modular
Thermaltake Armor Revo(Stock fans + small fan from my old PC)
Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM
LG Bluray Writer

Majority of the time fallout 3 runs pretty smooth(60fps), but when i arrive at point lookout pier, at points it'll crawl down to 30 fps, wtf? i spent $350(about $1400 on the whole system) on this card recently & can't even run a 4 year old game on max? -__- is this card just s***? or theres something wrong with my system?

Nope. You spent 350 to not be able to play 5 year old game that looks like crap.

In any case, it's probably an issue with the game not hardware. Bethesda was never known for good game engines and optimization.

Fallout 3 is a buggy masterpiece, and that has been known for a long while. Last time I went through I had to rush through the vault escape sequence as it would always crash in this particular room, so as soon as I got in there I sprinted to the other side and out of the vault.

Chances are its just the game, your hardware is fine.

I've noticed that as long as I go with one of the built in presets for graphics quality the game is much more stable. If you try changing anything it freaks out.

That may help you.

There is a good amount of tweaks out there to improve fallout 3.
Google it. As far as i remmber there are 2 things that are must haves:

1 was setting Fallout 3 to use only 2 cores (seems it helped with stability)

2 was something to smooth the frame rate:

For the second you need fallout mod manager and FOSE:

You will need to do a lot of work, but for me at least it did improve the game.
