I have an 8 core Mac Pro, everything has been working fine...until I upgraded to Mountain Lion.  Doing anything video intensive causes the system to crash.  Sometimes the whole system has a kernel panic and reboots on its own.  Other times, the video goes nuts, and I get repeating patterns all over the screen, and am unable to get the system back to a usable state without having to hold the power button.  The video card was a GeForce 8800GT, which I have been using for years with zero issues... until upgrading to Mountain Lion.  I have all updates installed as well.  I took the video card out and put back the ATI that came with the machine, and it seems to have resolved it.  But why is it doing this?  The Geforce is a far superior card, and I hate not having it.  If there is no fix, I may just downgrade and start looking at switching back to a Windows machine.  If anyone has any suggestions or answers, please help.  I appreciate it.

 

Below I'm pasting a log of the kernel panic:
