New i5 2500k, 6950 2gb, 8gb Ripjaw underperforming?

So my build is as follows:

CPU: i5 2500k
GPU: Asus 6950 2gb
RAM: Ripjaw 2x4 Gb 1600
Motherboard: Asus P8p67
GPU: GS 700 PSU
Chassi: NZXT H2

I figured i could play games such as Call of duty: Black ops on 1920x1080 on max settings without a prob... but it i certainly cant :/  I havent realy tried single player, but in MP it wont do. I play at 15-50 fps or so and its feels quite unreliable. However crysis 2 seems to player smoother...though that is in single player. Bit hard to get a conclusion from this info i understand, but my question is:

Will overclocking my i5 2500k make any difference? And do you recommend flashing bios to 6970/overclocking the 6950. Is it gonna make a big dif? I've read some articles about the overclocking on 6950 and it seems kind of neat.

Anyway...i might get another 6950 to boost the performance, but sadly my GS 700 cant handle it so will have to get a new one...and that might be bit out of my budget atm.

Oh and also - if im gonna overclock my CPU/GPU - got any recommended cooling options? I heard the CPU fan aint realy up to the job atleast...

Thanks in advance for any help!

Are your drivers updated?
and overclocking your CPU will add a few frame rates at max
but thats not the issue. the issue is your GPU..check your drivers first.

You dont mention your OS

what is it ?

Your hardware should be plenty , so the problem is the set up most likely

Sometimes fps does drop down even to 15. Your setup is fine maybe you should have gotten a 6970 or a gtx 570. Since you already have the 6950 might as well pick up another and x-fire it. Best thing to do is use some benching software 3dmark or unigine and compare your results to similar hardware config
