Yes, it's possible otherwise Apple would be running afoul of the FTC and its various counterparts in other countries around the world.

The Mac Pro is designed for people who need some serious computing power, or just people with inferiority complexes who have to have some incredibly souped up machine to allay feelings of inadequacy.

As for it making a difference, it depends on what you are expecting. For the average computer user, this system is beyond overkill. It won't really make web browsing any faster, nor email, word processing, etc. But if you're doing a lot of high end video editing work, and you basically live inside Final Cut Pro, it can have a profound impact.

I got 32GB of Rhinomac memory in my Mac Pro Tower 3.2ghz works great part# RH-MP800/32GK

I got this from a reseller in Toronto
www.rhinomac.com they are a canadian company and were more than happy to help me with all my questions and then direct me to the reseller.

100% I would say use them for all your technical questions and use there resellers they seem to have really trained the reseller on the products

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
