    Go to OWC and you can get all the specs for your RAM. Basically you need:

    667MHz ECC Mac Pro
    Memory Information

    8 Total Slots, 32GB Supported
    Must Upgrade using Matched Pairs
    DDR2 240 Pin Fully-Buffered DIMM
    72 Bit (64 bit + 8 bit ECC)
    Mac Pro Specific Heatsink on Module
    Four or More FB-DIMMs installed provides for best performance

    see this is where it gets confusing because this isnt the default configuration for this model and serial, it has been upgraded, cpu wise and memory, so im trying to figure out whats what

    apple on the phone told me 16gb total not 32 so you can see my confusion, could i mix it and keep the 1gb singles in that are givgin me 4gn total and put 2gbs in the rest

    You need it to have the Apple approved heat syncs as well:
