fallout 3 is buggy on new computers because it came out when multicores didn't exists.
the only way i know to avoid this problem is to get an old style singlecore OR a multicore with really hi frequency, at least 2.5 Gh ( in this way one of the cores should be able to keep up with the game, the game will always use only 1 cpu core )

this will make ctd less frequent yet still it will happen. quicksaving can help tho, i played it on a 2.7 quad core processor and it used to last like 15min before a ctd, than load again and continue playng.

this is a know issue btw, you can look on google for some patching made by users.
those patch don't usually help at all, but you never know...
