The game will freeze up as soon as the birthing sequence starts, I'm completely knew to any form of PC gaming (like I downloaded steam 2 days ago) so if you could use layman's terms as much as possible that'd be greeeat.

Any help is appreciated THANKS!

It's a common problem. Just do some googling.

Did you try adding the following lines at the end of the General section in the Fallout.ini file?

bUseThreadedAI=1
iNumHWThreads=2

Pretty sure this was the fix that got it working for me.

Always check the Steam forums for the games you're having trouble with, it's not hard and you can probably find someone having the same issue.

Well you clearly graduated from ass-hat school, so I guess you CAN make those kind of judgments.
