Still my #1 choice for my photography: wide gamut, true calibration, friendly pixel density.
SSDs, hard drives, iPad, enclosures, used Macs and much more!

A 96GB kit for 8-slot and 12-core Mac Pros is about twice the 48GB kit price.
A 32GB is a lot less costly than 48GB, and enough for many purposes, but serious Photoshop users should go straight to 48GB.
A 64GB kit for 8-slot and 12-core Mac Pros.
A 96GB kit for 8-slot and 12-core Mac Pros slightlly less than twice the 48GB kit price.
Mac Pro — 24GB as 3 X 8GB
While adequate for some users, 12GB can easily be eaten up by programs like Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Get 24GB preferentially.
