Boxster 986 Third Gear Grinding every time I shift into third.

Hi All,
I have a 99 boxster with 110,000 miles and a five speed transmission. Every time I shift from second to third, i get a some grinding. It was coming up intermittently last couple of days and now its happening every time i shift to third. Does not happen at any other gear. I can also feel the teeth grinding on the transmission shifter. The sound is pretty loud. Is this a bad synchro? I have also noticed on third gear, at 3k rpm precisely, i hear a small grinding sound for a millisecond. It does not happen at any other gear at 3k rpm.

Any one know what might be going on?
Thanks,
Vidhu
