Yeah, I would probably get the eight 4GB modules for $50...that looks like a good, going rate. And I wouldn’t worry about being 667MHz. Those are way more plentiful and therefore less expensive than 800MHz.

The one from the photo, 2Rx4, is fully compatible - but 667MHz. Don't buy any 4Rx4.
OK now, just so I'm clear on this, this is what I'd be looking to get.
"PC-2 5300F 4GB memory modules ECC Fully Buffered. eight modules for $50"
So I should be good with these?

Yep. Remember, just 2Rx4. Do not buy 4Rx4 memory for Mac Pros.
