For me, I would choose a turbo plasma rifle (with 200 small energy cells) and a power armor (modified by Smitty in the Hub). Having 8 Perception and 9 Agility really help too. Energy weapon rating should be 150% or above. And plenty of Stimpaks (about 40 or so).
Ooops. Sorry. This is the wrong board. I thought I was at a Fallout and Fallout 2 fan site (shrug)...
