    It basically means if you want to add just 1 GB of RAM, you need to add two 512 sticks. Always add RAM in pairs, always remove in pairs on the Mac Pro.

    It means that you can't add one 4GB module and one 2GB module. You have to add RAM in matched pairs, meaning if you want to add any amount of RAM, you have to add it in increments of two identical sticks.

    For instance, if you want to add 4GB, you can add four (two sets of two) 1GB sticks or you can add two 2GB sticks, but you cannot add a single 4GB stick.

    Make sense?
