You say this happens after an hour? Could this not be a heat problem?

I know the 7950GX2 is suppose to be pretty bad with its cooling solution.

I've JUST got a 7950GX2 myself, so will check what COD2 performance is like on mine for you.

Sadly my COD2 has bugged out after formating and reinstalling XP so i've not been able to test it properly.

Although it does run smooth i was hitting 250fps + in DX7 with 2xAA @ 1280x1024

But in Warsow i was getting 999fps about 95% of the time - it would only drop to 499fps :D

CS:Source is also running smoothly which is great news :D
