hi.. I have a mac pro(previous original model)-
2 x 2.66 GHz dual xeon processors, 5gb of ram.

Can I upgrade the processor to 2x quad processors?
If yes, Which intel chips(2.66 GHz quad or above)are right for
my mac(motherboard)?
-I checked at some of sites such as newegg.com etc, there were a lots of Xeon processors.
I couldn't know which one was right for me.

Is this valuable for its price?-
(I am asking for its overall performance versus the price, no matter what I do with it.
and my updating starts from 2x 2.66 GHz dual processors, not starting from nothing.
It means, for example, I update it to 2X 2.xx GHz quad with the payment of $500 or up
then if I get just x1.3 faster performance than the current cpu, it is invaluable for me.)

thanks.

Do not think this is possible. Apple Discsussions recommends selling what you have and buying an Intel machine. here is the link:-
