    By freezing do you mean completely locking up or beachballs?

    How much hard drive space is still available?

    Have you tried repairing permission in Disk Utility? (your HD)/Applications/Utilities

    What is your CPU usage in Activity Monitor when slowdowns occur? (your HD)/Applications/Utilities

    That's call a Mac Pro. PowerMac is only used for certain pre-intel Macs.

    Looks like you shuld be under warranty. Contact AppleCare.

    Thanks guys, there is like 200GB hard drive left!!! And when it freezes it stops completely for about 30 seconds so cant check activity.

    Am trying the "repair disk permissions" function now then will give applecare a call if no luck.
