Battlefield 3 crashes with the installation of a new Radeon 6950 2GB

I have a very odd situation.

This is my rig:

AMD Phenom 9850 Quad Core 2.5GHz
4.00 GB Ram
Radeon 6950 2gb Dirt Edition
Windows 7 Ultimate

I was previously running a Radeon 4770 512mb graphics card, and BF3 run fine, I could play for hours and it wouldn't crash.

I just bought a Radeon 6950 2gb Dirt 3 Edition, (and just recently returned another Radeon 6950 2gb because the game would crash), and I am having the same problem. After about 5 minutes (sometimes less), the game will hang and crash (Battlefield 3 has stopped working).

I have played Starcraft 2 on the highest settings, and have lowered BF3 settings to High from Ultra, and it still crashes.

I doubt that I have the terrible luck that I got two bad cards, any suggestions on how to fix this?

Thanks!

  1. I had to remove all video drivers and run CCleaner and install new drivers before I could get my 6950 2GB EVGA card to work without crashing BF2. It may be the same issue with BF3.
