I think, it has nothing to do with FreeBSD. ECC just makes you sleep better.

I suggest always to use ECC as an additional level of safety.
We use Tyan motherboards out of the Thunder series. They have all you
need for a server on board. There is the Tiger series if you do not need
all the features of the Thunders.
We have had once in a while problems with newly released boards and
their BIOS'. An update from Tyan's site helped always.
