It's hard to say, really. I'm not sure I really even use my Mac Pro in it's current form for anywhere near 100% of it's capacity. Whether adding more ram will be beneficial to you is anyone's guess. In either case, throwing in the extra 2x16gig would give you the peace of mind that you probably have spec'ed out your machine to the absolute maximum performance.
