Have you tried playing around with your AGP Aperture Size? I had some pauses in games like Far Cry and bumping it up from the default 64MB to 256MB did the trick.
Also, I saw my friend have a similar problem on his 6800 Ultra and the problem went away after we dropped his overclock down a bit. Apparently there was some clock-throttling going on with his card. A few extra FPS isn't worth it a the cost of system stability IMHO.
This may or may not apply to your particular situation but I thought the information might benefit someone here.
