Default Freezes with new dual core cpu

I recently upgraded my CPU from an Athlon64 3000+ to an Athlon64 x2 4600+. Now, when running World of Warcraft, the X server will freeze with the exception that the mouse pointer still moves. This appears to be an SMP problem, because a) the problem didn't exist with the single core cpu, and b) the problem doesn't happen when booting with maxcpus=1. I flashed the latest BIOS (F11) a week ago. The new BIOS/old cpu worked fine.

When the bug hits, I can ssh into the box and see this message in dmesg:

NVRM: Xid (0005:00): 6, PE0000 0448 00e6e6e6 00000fec 00000000 00e6e6e6
NVRM: Xid (0005:00): 28, L1 -> L0

System specs:
Gigabyte GA-K8NF-9 (nForce 4 chipset)
AMD Athlon64 x2 4600+
2GB Ram
Gigabyte GV-NX66T128D (GeForce 6600GT)
Fedora Core 5 x86_64
