Honestly, either contact Apple directly or go to a Mac forum. You won't find much help here on a PC forum.

The comercials say they just work, so I'd imagine it would just work.

I agree with the others, you'll probably want to find a good Mac forum, I don't even know how to turn the things on.

The Mac Pro is socket 771 with a 5000x chipset. Penryn processors that use a 1333FSB should work. The 1600FSB processors will not work.

Socket 771? Isn't the latest socket 775? Maybe I am missing something...

No such thing as a Penryn Mac Pro. The 1st gen Mac Pros all have Woodcrest (Xeon 5100 series) processors. The 2nd gen have Clovertowns and the 3rd gen (8-core) have Harpertowns.
