Catalyst, xf86 crashes

All tests are made under arch64 using wine 1.5.5 with OpenInputDesktop and sound disabled.
It used to work perfectly with nvidia gtx295, but I moved to my other cards Radeon 6990 xfire Radeon 6970 and the game started to crash the Launcher runs normally and get the 3GB thing until I get the cursor where the game crashes. I have tried with catalyst 12.6, catalyst 12.4, catalyst 11 and xf86-video-ati 6.14.99
none of them solved the problem and it seems that it's a wine related problem.
I have googled and did many searches and with no luck.
my framerate in TERA is quite bad (barely playable) with UI showing, but becomes very smooth if I hide the UI completely using CTRL+Z. not the best solution, as you need the UI visible to interact with NPCs, but I can disable UI while out questing or in dungeons and the game plays well.
Phenom II 955 @ 3.4 GHz
to get past the OpenInputDesktop loop, no idea if its a good way to do this though :P
This way TERA.exe launches and displays a messagebox about the 3GB boot option being enabled, after clicking ok it switches into fullscreen mode and shortly displays the cursor before one of the threads crashes and TERA.exe just remains dead there.
