Please can someone help me as I'm starting to lose the will to live!

About six months ago I installed a new Graphics Card (Geforce 6600 256 AGP) and all was well until a month ago. Now it will only run a high-end game (Battlefield 2, Call Of Duty 2) for about an hour or so before holes start appearing in the terrain and characters. Then 'spikes' start appearing and it eventually becomes unplayable.

Updated the Graphics Drivers - No effect
Installed an additional case fan - No effect
Upgrading the CPU fan (grasping at straws by this stage) - No effect
Exchanged the Graphics card for a new one - No effect

Can anyone suggest what might be going wrong before I throw the whole thing out of the window!
