Problem with latest games

Hello, I am having problems with most of the new games: "Fallout New Vegas" ; "Two Worlds II" ; "Divinity 2 The Dragon Knight Saga" and "Arcania Gothic4". When I launch any of those games after few seconds I get notification that that game is not responding. I installed all the latest drivers and DirectX.
My PC:
OS: Windows 7 x64
Processor: Q9550 CORE2QUAD 2,83GHz
Motherboard: P31-ES3G GIGA-BYTE
RAM: 4Gb
HDD: 1TB
Graphic card: GTX 260

Any solutions?

I would honestly head to the particular game developer's forums for solutions to these issues as I am sure plenty of other gamers have had similar issues. Fallout New Vegas shouldn't have any issue recognizing or being installed on a 64bit O/S since Civilization 5 (released in close proximity) works just fine on it. As does Fallout III which uses the same engine and was released months ago.
Try a beta driver for your GPU as they could potentially resolve errors in new release titles.
Did you remove your old GPU drivers before installing the most recent ones? I personally haven't had any issues by not doing so but I do know it's highly reccomended here and on your GPU's website.
Check your RAM to make sure it's not faulty and if you have overclocked your PC you might try returning it to default settings for a more stable experience to see if that resolves the issues your speak of.

Just noted that there is a thread a little below titled FALLOUT : NEW VEGAS. A huge amount of posts suggests many of our members play it. Perhaps a few of them have some additional info, tips, or tricks.
