After applying update 10.5.6 to a Mac Pro, the screen freezes randomly.  Machine works fine sometimes for a couple of days, then freeze again.  I was able to get a screen shot before it completely freezes and I have to restart.  I've tried running the disk utils, reinstalling the update and a PRAM reset.  Any other suggestions?

Thanks,

Also if you still have the hardware test disk that came with your Mac, you should run it.

Ran the update and still had the same issue.  I also ran the hardware tests and didn't find any issues.  I noticed two capacitors on the video card were slightly bulging, so I  replaced the video card and so far everything is working.
