    ECC stands for Error correction code, basically is used when data reliablitily is more important than performance, such as servers. ECC is a bit slower than non-ecc RAM, but it's more reliable.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    for workstations...use non-ECC ;)
    on gaming machines you don't need the ECC memory, just get yourself a stable motherboard and you'll be fine

    ECC/buffered/registered memory doesn't like to be overclocked either.

    Chances are your board doesnt support it, even if you wanted to get it. The only platforms you really need registered dimms on right now are the a64fx, opteron, multi-xeon, itanium, etc.
