Getting ready to purchase a mac pro dual cpu system (2 x 2.66 Westmere).  If I want 32 GB of RAM from APPLE it costs $3500 (8x4GB).  KTA-MP1333/4G from Kingston (8x4GB) will cost me $300!!  Both are DDR3, 1133, ECC.  So what is the difference??

Thanks

Apple branding and markup ... my general rule with Apple ram is to buy generic stuff and keep the old stuff (incase you ever need to do a applecare ) :)
