If your card has 2 DVI-Dual-Link, it will support 120Hz. I believe your card has two of them. Only DVI-Dual-Link is capable of 120Hz due to the amount of data, otherwise must use native Display Port, without adapter.

I just thought of something actually.

Could it possibly be a power supply issue, the card(s) not receiving enough power?

I think your PSU is fine. Restore all overclocking settings and if your sytstem still freezes.

I'm getting the same thing, in BC2. Dead rising, fine. WoW fine. BC2, can't finish a match without freezing. Audio buzzes and the screen fixes

Any chance using Afterburner running in the background at the same time playing BC2?

Or something like GPU-Z....I had problems with BC2 freezing on me anytime I would run monitoring software (it would freeze at random times too like the OP is describing). Get AMD System Monitor. It is the only monitoring program (for checking cpu and gpu loads....temp programs never give me trouble) that wouldn't lock me up.

Delete or rename RTcore.exe in Afterburner will solve your problem.

As for GPU-Z or HW monitor, there is another solution but since it's a statement rather than a question ...... Oh well lol

I've come to the conclusion it was most certainly the factory OC on the 6970.

Should I try and RMA it, or just live with 925 instead of 940?

I think you should try each card not in crossfire. If its fine as a single card then it must be something else.
