Hello, just switched and buying some extra parts for my nice big Mac Pro - can anybody advise if this will work in my Mac Pro and whether I need to buy any cables to blug her in? I feel a bit stupid asking but the Specification says PC.

internal Hard Disc

Also Memory - it says here not to Mix EEC which I have no idea what that means - I will be keeping my existing 1gb that came with the Mac Pro

Thanks!

If it is a SATA hard drive then you should be fine using it in a Mac Pro. And as long as crucial says that the RAM works in the Mac Pro you should also be fine using that.

Not sure what that means - is a SATA different from an ATA?

ECC is Error Correcting Code memory which shouldn't be mixed with non-ECC memory. Check out dealram.com for great prices and a chart which will steer you towards the right type of ram for your machine.
