sounds like underpowered GPU or overheating GPU?
possibly corrupt install?
How smooth does it run prior to crashing? does it slow down just before?

i have problems with just those particular games,I can play Stalker no problem and finished Crysis,my cpu is Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.00ghz,
2046 RAM,not sure what Mobo is The game runs smoothly up until that happens when little lines comes on screen and eventually it freezes up,I did get a blue screen message once about nv4_disp.dll page fault in nonpaged area but with latest drivers I am baffled by what is causing this

There are apparantly some issues with running 8800GT on x64 that leads to a requirement to totally remove Nvidia, and then reinstall, cant really see how the files corrupt but this worked for one chap with a similar problem.
I believe there is a program that does a full removal / clean of Nvidia but i cant recall the name.

Might also be to do with Pixel Shading, i read this card struggles with it on WoW so try turning that option down a touch....although running Stalker and Crysis says this aint the problem.

All this isnt from experience, im just using my google powers in my lunch break :p

Is your PC even stable? Have you run any stress testing?

I'd recommend Prime 95, and then take a look at ATI tool to stress the GPU.

If your PC turns out to be stable, then you can start looking at game specific tweaks.
