If you are using hardware monitoring sucah as Afterburner, turn it off. Hardware monitoring will always hit on performance.

what catalyst version are you using? I use afterburner in the background and have no issues. Are you sure your processor isnt being used up by another process or something? My friend has 1100T at 3.7GHz with a 6970 stock and pushing solid 50fps ultra settings with 4x msaa on.....

First, I would set your Clock speeds at stock, and un-unlock your GPU and use it at stock clocks. It might be an instability is present in your overclocking/unlcoking.
