Mac Keeps Freezing

My Mac keeps freezing at random points and at startup. Sometimes only the Apple Logo will load, other times it won't load at all, sometimes the loading thing gets stuck... it's getting really annoying and it just started doing it this week. I had no problems before.

Heres the latest Kernal Panic Report that I could get a hold of before it would freeze again: (you can tell this has been happening alot by the amount of panics since the last report...)

Interval Since Last Panic Report: 8597 sec
Panics Since Last Report: 43

It's probably your video card. Is it overheated? Is any software conflicting with its driver?
