I'm in the process of researching how to replace my old Dual CPU PIII Xeon 550Mhz system, with 768mb of ECC RAM. As a professional SysAdmin, I really value ECC RAM on my systems to catch errors.
But, being out of the loop on the lower end systems, I'm wondering about whether ANY lower end boards support ECC memory. Or maybe this would be a good article, talking about unbuffered vs buffered DIMMs, DDR, DDR2, DDR3, etc. And of course ECC vs non-ECC RAM.
It's just that once I get 2 or more Gb of RAM into a system, ECC really looks to be the samrt move. But is it cost effective or even doable in a < $150 motherboard?
