what are the rest of your system spec? have tried using different drivers on the game? also what is your cpu and gpu temperature when under load?

q6600 -2.4ghz

as for the temps i got 106c for cpu and i think the gpu went upto 73c

Well there is your problem 106c for the cpu and 73c for the card. Those temps are sky high especially for the cpu.

the gpu temperature is normal under load but your cpu are not. is it really in celsius? use core temp to check your cpu temp

well then any suggestions????

you can get core temp here:

if your cpu temp indeed was as high as you said before you have to check your cpu heatsink and clean it off dust. you might have to replace the thermal paste as well if cleaning the heat sink does not relly help to cool down your cpu temp

Do you mind if I come over and cook a slab of meat on that cpu :D 

Just joking but you need to bring those temps down period. Clean the fan and the cooler while you may need to replace the compound.
