Have you tried looking at OWC?  I got 16Gb for my MP 3,1 a few years back and the prices were pretty good.  Would love another 16Gb to feed it's hungry belly.

Hi,

I looked at OWC store first thing.. The price for 16Gb kit for the 3,1 version Mac Pro is a bit high (about $600), so I am wondering if somebody selling used memory.. If I will not find any, I will go to the OWC for an upgrade..

Thanks,
Roman

I may have what you want, but am not sure if my memory will work for you.
I am considering upgrading my Mac Pro to 64MB, in which case, I need to
sell my 16 GB boards (4 x 4GB).  I am not at home at the moment, but
believe they are the 1333 MHz boards.  They are from OWC.

Please contact me at :   rudlinfineart@gmail.com   This might work out
great for both of us!

The 3,1 from memory is 800 MHz.  Not sure if this makes a difference.  If not I might be keen on half of your RAM.

I believe the faster memory will not work in your machine, but you could check with OWC
to confirm.  If it will, then great.

Just had a quick look into it and the 3,1 definitely needs 800 Mhz RAM. :-\

Hi Craig,

Thanks for the offer.. I checked my Mac specs - it needs slower RAM unfortunately :-(

Regards,
Roman
