    My first guess is your graphics chip and/or pci bus. I'll guess and say you don't monitor temps, but did you notice if your system was getting extremely hot? Just a guess.

    Have an external HDD or other storage attached through USB?

    I do monitor my temperature through istat, they aren't getting excessively hot though.

    Yes, I do but only sometimes but when the panic occurs it's not connected to the mac.

    I'm having very similar panics, sometimes reporting intel gpu and sometimes nvidia. What's going on? It's the new i5.
