    Yes, SATA drives are what you are looking for.
    Here is a link giving the specifications and how to install them.
    Open the 2nd link on the page.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    Hi Brice0501,

    Those drives are certainly well priced but I'm not sure of the connotations of being OEM .... someone else will have to answer that one. It's probably not a concern ...

    The Mac Pro supports the second generation of SATA drives—sometimes known as SATA II or SATA-300—which have a maximum potential bandwidth of 3 Gbps.

    The Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 drive you've linked us to, matches these specs.

    Installing drives in the Mac Pro is not too dificult. Each empty hard-drive bay includes a metal drive carrier. You simply attach the drive to the carrier with four screws and slide the carrier back into place. The drive connects directly to the motherboard, without messy data or power cables. Don’t try to slide them in and out when the Mac Pro is turned on and finally, the Mac Pro drives are not hot-swappable.

    Seagate and WD drives are OEM parts in some macs. So they stand the most chance of working fine.

    Had problems with Maxtor and Hitachi drives, although I think the iMacs sometimes are fitted with Maxtor.
