I don't know if the GoG version includes SFALL, but I reccomend that at the very minimum in terms of playing fallout 1. Here's a GoG forum post with links:
http://www.gog.com/en/forum/Fallout_Series/fallout_2_mods/post119

sfall is basically a program that intercepts some of the calls (mostly the direct3d stuff to translate to direct x).
Features:

* Increase movement and combat speed to up to 10x normal.
* Play fallout in a window or in 16 bit colour mode
* Use d3d9 in place of the usual ddraw
* Use the mouse scroll wheel in the inventory, barter, conversation and save/load menus.
* Assign a use to the middle mouse button, and adjust mouse sensitivity beyond fallouts normal range
* Adjust or remove the 13 year time limit
* Fixes the broken pathfinder and sharpshooter perks
* Adds some additional script functions for modders to use


Thats the one that can remove the time limit, I think it fixes the graphical glitches under vista/7, and its also the one where you can scale the viewing window up and apply filters to it so it doesn't look too bad when you do.
