O hai, when i play fallout 3...

Hai thar Problem When I play Fallout 3 it plays fine for 5mins-3040mins but then it crashes to desktop for a display driver crash, then it comes up with the fallout 3 has stopped working windows message. I have the latest 1.5 patch for fallout 3 and have the latest drivers, 182.50. Specs Vista Business 32bit AMD Phenom 9950 Black Edition @ 2.9ghz Nvidia GeForce 9800gt 3.5gb OCZ Reaper 1066Mhz Asus Crosshair Formulae 2 2x500gb Samsung F1 (Raid 1) CoolerMaster Centurion CM 590 650 Antec PSU My 9800gt is overclocked to 730 coreclock 1040 memory clock 1740 shaderclock I turn the fans up to 100% thinking overheating is the problem but they stay at around 50 degrees centigrade. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN IN OTHER GAMES Not even Crysis

    You may want to try removing the drivers and reinstalling them, but if that doesn't work, then I would say it is an indication of an unstable video card overclock. How did you stress test your video card overclock?

    Or it could just be the nature of Fallout 3. The game has its share of bugs and CTDs aren't and uncommon occurrence. Before you begin doubting your hardware, you might want to check out both Bethesda's forum and Fallout Nexus forums. Between those 2 places you should, at the very least, come up with more information on your problem.

    Maybe the overclocking is making it.Sometimes the overclocking isn't good for games.

    Yeah, fallout 3 does crash ALOT! Maybe you could update the drivers or roll them back and see what happens
