    Fallout: New Vegas, locks up the OS sometimes

    I just had to reset my PC because the game crashed, and caused the whole OS to stop responding with it. This is not the first time= it has done that. Also, it is the only game aside from Fallout 3 that seems to do it occasionally. The system is not going to BSoD or switching off on its own... just freezing it.

    Is your power supply sufficient for your system (including your video card)?
