How important is it to get ECC memory.
I'm in the process of choosing memory for a 16GB system for under £1000 and didn't realise how tough it was going to be! There are so many 2GB chips to choose and very few 4GB. I've not found a motherboard (in the UK) which would support 8 DDR2 chips, and I've read somewhere that less is better anyway.
I've found a 16GB kit for £300, 800Mhz PC2-6400 but its not ECC. This is for a windows PC..
