    Silly 6.5 upgrade question

    First off thank you in advance for any help/insight you may be able to provide.

     

    I'm looking to bump from MC 6.03 to 6.5 via the upgrade offer currently running. My question is can my system handle the upgrade. I looked over the specifications and I must painfully admit my ignorance in this regard. The "qualified" Mac systems PDF indicates:

     Mac Pro dual Quad Core 2.26 GHz “Nehalem” 

    The system requirements on the upgrade page indicates:

    Intel Dual or Intel Dual Core 2.66 GHz Xeon processor or faster

     

    I'm a bit confused. I have a Mac Pro 2 x 2.26 Quad Core Intel Xeon, 24 gigs of ram and a NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512 MB, OS 10.7.5. Is my system able to handle the upgrade?

     

    Again sorry if I sound incredibly dumb I want to be certain before I lay down the cash for the upgrade.

     

    cheers
