I am having huge problems with my brand new iMac 27" and ArchiCAD 14.
At least 2-3 times per day ArchiCAD 14 freezes in a way that the whole system does not respond. The cursor moves on the screen as I move the mouse, but the keyboard doesn't respond nor I can click on anything. The music in iTunes continues to play, but there is no way to force quit AC and continue working. The only thing I can do is to shut iMac down using power button and start it up again. It happens ONLY WHEN I'M USING THE 3D WINDOW.

This sounds like a possible hardware problem, but I can't rule out a low-level driver failure. Have you installed any 3rd party drivers for peripherals?
A single application shouldn't be able to drag down the entire system. Normally, you would simply force a hung application to quit and then carry on. The fact that the whole OS is crippled suggests something low-level, e.g. RAM failure.
I forgot to follow-up... Anyway, it seems it was a video card driver problem. It went away with subsequent OS X update (10.6.6 if I remember correctly). Highly annoying to buy a new computer and being frustrated with such an issue...
