If you're not running out of RAM opening apps (you can't be), adding more RAM won't help. Adding more RAM will actually get the RAM to work at full speed though. The Mac Pro needs at least 4- DIMMs installed to work at full speed.

Apps won't be using all 8 cores to do something simple like open an app. If you're comparing how fast your quad core PC opened XP apps to the Mac Pro opening Leopard apps, that isn't a fair comparison, is it? And really, it's not about how fast the app opens, is it? The Mac Pro and its 8-cores is designed for what happens after the app opens.

The speed of the machine is determined by how fast it gets the end job done not the time it takes to open an app.
