Max, 60 fps because you should probably use vsync. btw, on a different note i wouldn't worry about the ''Fixes'' for the COTD. They only make it worse on the FX line. I get a good 2-3 hours sometimes before a crash. Enjoy

Will I be able to MOD FALLOUT 3?
(mainly immersion mods)


I'm not expecting to go crazy but can my rig handle a decent handful of mods?


If you could let me know that would be great :D
Thank You!
