I usually use High Resolution Textures Mods ranging from 1024×1024 quality upwards to 4096×4096. But bear in mind, higher resolution textures means more graphic card RAM and generally a powerful PC is necessary. If you aren’t sure if your PC can handle it don’t install every texture pack at once. Install one, test one, install the next one, test the next one, etc.
So far I’ve come across this packs I really think will up your quality a lot.
To use custom made textures and mods, you need to Invalidate. Which is why you’ll need ArchiveInvalidation Invalidated .
With those six Packs you’ll up the quality of your Fallout 3 by a lot! Now there are a lot of other small hi-res textures for all sort of stuff. For example for Vault Doors, Historical Documents, Skill Books and much, much more.
Just look for “hi-res Fallout 3” on google.com or Fallout 3 Nexus and you’ll be baffled.
My system specs are: CPU: E6600 @ 3GHZ, 9×333 | MoBo: P5B Deluxe/WiFi-AP | RAM: 4GB A-Data Vitesta Ext. Edt. 800Mhz@833 | GPU: PowerColor HD4870 1GB
Enjoy your Fallout 3 in much more detail, Don Salva.

Like a lot of people who have large amount of mods, especially texture mods, I’ve experienced frequent crashes to desktop. This is due the fact that Fallout 3 is a 32Bit game and is programmed in such a way to make use of maximum 2GB of RAM. If you have, say 4GB RAM or more, Fallout 3 makes no use of it.
Fear not, there has been a solution since last year which I completely missed up until a few months ago. Large Address Aware Enabler for FO3 or FO3 RAM Boost. Either one works and reduces the crashes to almost a nonexistence.
