BF 2142 + other games freeze or CTD

I never used to have a problem with this computer, but I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and have a bunch of problems. BF 2142 will play perfectly fine for 10 minutes or so and then freeze. I can't Alt+F4 or ctrl+alt+del out. Bad Company 2 also crashes to the desktop in single player at random times.

At first I thought the memory might be bad. I set the timings and speed earlier on, and also got some error that said overclocking failed (even though I hadn't). However, I just ran memtest for around 20 hours just to make sure and had zero errors. Would this most likely be a hardware or software issue? I've heard that some games have compatibility issues with Windows 7.

My specs:

Sapphire 4870x2
i7 920 (not overclocked yet)
OCZ Gold 6GB RAM
P6T Deluxe V2 Mobo
850W PSU

  1. Make sure EVERY driver is updated
  2. Also, is this an"upgrade" or fresh install of windows 7 (formatted drive to remove old OS?) If it was upgraded, that's the problem, still using some old executive files and probably having conflicts with new OS and older files, with a fresh install it will be driver issues.
