Topic: RAM: ECC, or not ECC

    RAM: ECC, or not ECC

    I\'m planning on getting two 512 mb DDR Dram chips for my motherboard. But there is a rather large jump in price for ECC registered modules. (some Error correction thing) Is this something I should spend the extra money on for use with giga, or just get the non ecc registered chips?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    No...that\'s Homer\'s job this year.

    Thanks for your help.

    I would expect the error-correcting advantage of ECC RAM to be minimal...an bit-flip error due to alpha particle bombardment rarely occurs. Software bugs and driver incompatibility errors have a far greater impact on the stability of Gigastudio than the once in a blue moon bit error to warrant the extra cost of ECC.

    ...unless, of course, you\'re also monitoring a nuclear reactor
