I bought Fallout 3 on sale a while back, and just got around to playing it. Everything was fine until I left the Vault, and now these annoying lines show up everywhere. Only in this game however. Any idea what could be causing this? Graphics Settings Very High, GTX 660. Attached is a picture for reference.

I have to ask...are your drivers the latest version? 


There are two ways to troubleshoot this.  The easiest way is to turn down the settings about 75% of the way down from the game launcher video ooptions.  See if it is OK.  If it is, turn up settings a bit at a time then go back into the game to see if the lines are back.  Once they are back, set it back a notch and you will be good to go. 


The other way is to turn down one setting at a time.  But not the general high or very high in the game launcher.  In game, there are more video settings.  Try turning down anisotropic filtering a notch.  If nothing happens try to turn down the antialiasing a bit.  And so on.  Only change one thing at a time.  Keep notes of wat you're changing each time. 


It looks like it is a rendering issue and anisotropic setting may be the culprit. 


EDIT: another idea is to turn down the screen resolution bit by bit too.  Maybe try that before messing with the graphics settings.
