Ok, I have this total freeze issue on Mac Pro 3,1 24gb ram, Geforce GTX 285.
It only seems to happen when on the net but the screen does a little dance and then everything is frozen except for the mouse.
I have zapped the pram, pwer button in while power cable out, start in safety mode.
It seems to be happening more frequently now.
I took a video of it, see what you think.

Have you made any hardware changes recently, or installed new software…that could be causing the freezing?

FYI…the link is not working.

Your too quick mate! nah, I should have waited a few more minutes for it to upload to dropbox.
I have only put Mountain Goat on but it was doing it before that just not as often. Yesterday I had to reboot about 6 times.
Vid should be good now.

Yeah…sometimes I'm too fast!

Yikes…that video is huge..it took a long time to download. You could probably cut down on the resolution & quality. If by freezing you mean that the cursor freezing & the video flickering…yes…I saw that.

If it only happens when you're on the internet…it may be some sort of conflict between the installed software on your Mac Pro & the internet browser you're using. If you're using Safari…you could try using Chrome, Firefox, etc….and see if that's any better/more stable.

Yes it is big, I wanted you to get that "Cinematic" experience (not)
I just uploaded it straight off my iPhone.
Anyway, thats a good idea about trying a different browser, I hadn't thought of that! (Brain fart!)
Thanks, and btw, you have a great name as well!
Cheers
