    Any advice for A fallout newb....like me? I just bought the game & aside from a frustrating Infinite loading screen bug(THANK GOD FOR STEAM'S BOARDS!!!), I'm thoroughly enjoying myself.
    I'll be back to post what my Stuff is at ATM.(I'm on a charisma/guns build, i think.)

    I take it you have the Steam version? If so and regardless of whether or not you plan on modding the game I would at least grab the FNV 4GB Patcher, the New Vegas Anti-Crash and New Vegas Stutter Remover fixes from the New Vegas Nexus Mods site. The 4GB patcher fixes the game so that it uses 4GB of memory instead of the 2GB it was locked to and the other two well do what the name say helps prevent crashes and prevents the stuttering the game sometimes does.

    Even if you don't play on modding the game at all, having those will help you have a better and smoother game.

    To echo something Vox said - save often. Very often. Especially as you get nearer the end of the main storyline.
