This process shows a single CPU MacPro, which gets a Xeon processor WITH the LID covering it and heatsink on it. As of MacPro4,1 with Nehalem it's bi-xeon CPU and heatsink on a bare processor chip, no lid covers. That difference cannot be seen from a built MacPro board (because of the big heatsinks-) But it's a good performance improvement (CPU temp the lower the faster) when heatsink's directly in contact with the chip.

If you can buy a Xeon upgrade just be sure to choose the processor without the lid (most Apple Mac setups) or with the lid cover (as PC setups)
