The website says this..."Mac Pro supports 8GB registered DIMMs (R-DIMMs) for up to 64GB of memory in 8-Core and 12-Core systems. R-DIMMs cannot be mixed with unregistered DIMMs."

So to add more do I have to find R-DIMM's

I will be getting the 2.4 8 Core..With 8gb from the factore.. 4x2. I want to add more when I get it.

And for some comparison:-


Mac Pro Memory
