So about 2 weeks ago i got fallout 3 game of the year edition on steam, and it's been givening me all sort of problems if it wasn't for the fact that absolutely love fallout 3 and it was only 25 bucks i probably would just stop playing

but i've been getting runtime errors, random game lock-ups and seems usually sensitive to gpu overclocking

pretty much has anyone been having similar problem with the steam version of this game

cpu is fine, it's been like that for over a year, rock solid i run folding at home now whenever i'm not playing and that keeps the cpu right at 100% all the time and never had that stutter at all.

i've been using the default clocks on the gpu after i found out how sensitive it was to overclocking, but outside of that, i'm still getting tons of crashes, happen alot when i enter a room, sometimes there will be texture problems

It isn't that, I'm running an i3 and it's stock and it crashes. I have an i3 on an H55 board and an ATI Radion 4800 HD. (which it detects as an NVIDIA card) It also isn't a Window 7, Vista, or XP specific issue. I reloaded XP on my system, tried it on Windows 7, even ran UBUNTU and tried running it under Wine. IT DOES APPEAR to be only the STEAM version. I also see some legitimacy that AV software might play a part in crashing it. I'm working on that next.

AV's real-time protection basically cause stutters and sluggishness.

Might I ask if you added the latest patch after you installed the game?
