    70 degrees at load is absolutely fine. I oc'ed mine and it runs flawless at 86 under load.

    Does this only happen in fallout 3 zeta?

    If so is the game fully patched? is it a legitiamte version? Are drivers fully up to date?

    Localised memory or core overheating I reckon. Download and instal EVGA precision tool, unlink vore and shaders overclocking, set fan control to manual, set fan speed to about 65%-70% max, and you should be good to go. That crashing happens all the time with my 260 if I forget to increase fan speed to that value in EVGA precision tool. Give it a whirl and see how you get on.

    Akasa AK-965 cooler LGA775, £12.98 exclluding delivery. (assuming you've got one of those sockets. Used a few of these in the past, very good cooler, quiet and cheap:)
