    Running slow can be caused by many things. Download the free OnyX maintenance and clean up program and run it in auto mode. Read the help and directions first. OnyX can also check your hard drive and repair permissions.

    Buying and adding additional memory is up to you and depends a lot on what you use your Mac Pro for. If you can afford to add 8 GB, go ahead and do it.

    Excellent suggestion above.
    Also, please take a look at how much Hard Drive space you have remaining and let us know. A common rule of thumb is that 15 % needs to be free for OS X use for temp storage (swap space).
