I had similar symptoms with my late 2007 MBP. It turned out to be the GPU which resides on the Logic Board. In my case, thankfully it failed just within the AppleCare warranty period so the repair was free.
Not up on current repair costs, but I would probably lean toward replacement with an Apple refurb as a better value. Refurbs from Apple are same as new quality and warranty.

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
