    After having wow freeze up my mac pro, i reinstalled from scratch.

    Played for about 2 hours then WoW froze up my computer again.

    The screen seems to get a purplish checkerboard like look to the entire screen when this happens.

    Can't say that I have any other problems on my mac.

    Any ideas?

    What are the complete specs on your Mac Pro ?

    It sounds like it might be your video card and / or temperature related.

    thanks for the response, wow just patched:

    We’ll be releasing a minor bug fix patch to version 3.2.0a. This sort of patch is very small in size, and we use them to fix specific issues that can’t be hot-fixed. Issues addressed with this patch:
    Fixed an exploit players were using with / commands
    Fixed a performance issue with players logging into the game
    Fixed an issue with Mac clients freezing near water
    Fixed a crash Mac clients were experiencing with shadows on Fixed Function cards
    Fixed an art issue with Freya Hard Mode where the light beams were visually too hard to see
    Fixed an issue with Loaner mounts requiring Cold Weather Flying

    so i'm hoping that takes care of it :)
