Is your computer getting hot ? Or the PSU is failing. Maybe driver issues. Tried reinstall games?

That's a DX10 card.

What about idle temps? What about the power supply?

would the 512Mb of vram be causing an issue?

No way lack of VRAM would crash the program. The games got protection for that.

remove the factory OC on the GPU. Are you playing it in dx9 mode, did xp ever support dx10? you may have to fiddle with the game to force dx9/

That might be, Windows XP does not support DirectX 10 for sure. Try forcing DX9.

One thing that could be worth doing is cleaning some dust out. I was on the verge of insanity when my completely able pc was crashing on all sorts of games. I couldnt figure it out. Turns out the gpu was quite full of dust, i removed the cover, cleaned it out and havent had any problems since

No it's not approved by microsoft, and I bet that's why you have those crashes. Actually, I tried getting that myself when I didn't want to upgrade to windows vista, but ended up reinstalling OS because that DirectX 10 'fix' made my PC very unstable.

If you want to play DX 10 games, get windows 7 man.

My brother used to run BF2 on a 512Mb 4870 and Windows XP so that is not the problem. Sorry I can't tell you what is though.
