If you sincerely believe that these are isolated issues, just google "Left 4 Dead freezes" as one example. The game - as with most Source based games - apparently has "problems" with these `new fangled multi core processors`. That's right, the ones that have been around since, well, four or five years now.
I'm using an Intel quad core and have had no crashes, freezes or glitches with Left 4 Dead and I've been playing it a lot in the past week. I'm also in the camp of never having had any problems with the Source engine based games. A few network issues here and there but never crashes with the engine or graphics problems.

Source is outdated, overrated and rapidly dragging things down with itself.
