sometimes freeze during reboot/start
Does this happen at the point where the Apple is on the screen and the gear has been spinning for a while?
That is the point where your graphics card switches to high-speed automatic mode, and its kernel extension begins using all the hardware assists your graphics card offers.Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers

You are on 10.7.3
Your gpu is ruled out?
unplugged everything but stock cable and keyboard
It isn't the power cord, the UPS, or the wall outlet.
Resetting SMC is a bit of unplug + power on with all the cables unplugged and then reconnect.
PSU is harder to test
PCIe cards ? those also matter
Happens if you try 32-bit kernel mode as well as 64-bit.

My theory is that this is a graphics card problem.
Is the card free of dust and is the fan still turning? The side door is not interlocked, and can be removed while the Mac is running, but components may be hot. If you need to remove dust, the approved method is to move the Mac to a "don't care if it gets dirty location, then get the dust airborne and out of the Mac with blasts of compressed air. Only use data-rated vacuums, as household vacuums make huge electronics-killing static charges.
The slower graphics modes modes are used in Safe Mode (hold down the Shift key as you restart) and during the Apple Hardware Test.
If still under Applecare, take it to the Genius Bar, or call AppleCare and describe your symptoms to them and requast a replacement graphics card (this also establishes a trail for use later).
On a new Mac Pro like this, you may want to consider adding an additional graphics card, with a mind to obsoleting the old one eventually.Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers

Well I think I have made some headway in this issue when booting up in Verbose Mode I have noticed that the hang always seems to occur right before the system is about to load the GUI and ask me for my log in information.
Specifically the hang seems to have somethign to do with my Ethernet ports as these lines from my last Verbose mode start up show!
I have bold faced the lines that the hang always seems to occure at any thoughts on this would be appreciated!

Regardless of the valadity of the OS, mine is legit. I am experiencing the same thing with my computer. Have you been able to fix and how?
Mine is consantly freezing right before login and even in the middle of login. I have taken my computer to the Genius Bar and they tested all of the hardware and everything checks out. Very frustrating, computer will freeze at any given time, even while I tyoping this.

Please start a new thread. This one is tainted with a different issue than yours, and may or may not be the same underlying problem. You will not get the attention you deserve by camping on this thread, and it is confusing to readers.Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers
