Segfaults can happen from genuine software bugs, but faulty memory is often to blame. Go get memtest+ from memtest.org and run it. This won't completely rule out memory errors though, some memory errors only occur when the machine is taxed. This could be a cooling issue, a power issue (cheap power supples abound these days), a video card or video driver issue, or of course a software bug in COD 4. Do other COD 4 players also report these problems?
