Monitor the video card temps while you play. Do the FPS drop before this happens if so it's overheating.
Bad driver I use 13.1 with my 6970.
Overheating / failing power supply.

It may not need to overheat or even be under much stress to crash if there's a problem. It looks like Gunz is still a 3D DX9 game, so even if its not very strenuous its still making your video card do something more than simple 2D rendering.

Do you have an overclock on the 2500K, and if so, have you tested it extensively for stability? Any overclock on the HD 6950?

This could also be a Problem with your ram. Try testing it with memtest 86+ if possible. You should pass multible runs, which takes pretty long, though. Best idea would probably be to run it over night.

Have you cleaned the dust out of the machine? Are all fans running properly?

Download the latest drivers from AMD.com but do not install them.  

Next, download Driver Sweeper and place a shortcut on your Desktop.

Then completely uninstall your AMD drivers, Catalyst Control Center etc...

Reboot into Safe Mode and run Driver Sweeper.

Let it search for all AMD Display drivers and uninstall whatever leftovers it finds.

Boot in normal Windows and install the new AMD Drivers that you downloaded earlier.

Test your games.
