With driver version 173.14.05 I got an  GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY very fast (after 2 minutes of playing the game - VIRTMEM>4096). With version 171.06 I could play about 5 minutes. I couldn't produce the black screen, so it could be a problem with your card or how wine handles the card ( 8600/9600 vs 8800 ).

I've applied this patch to get the game working, probably you could give it a try? Is your patch (3Dmark patch) doing the same?
