Oh - and the other criterion I forgot to mention. If the box in question is
only being used by 1 or 2 people and can have downtime to fix defects
whenever you want, non-ECC is a consideration.
That being said, if it is a box depended upon by many people and expected to
be reliable I'd spend the money on 4GB of ECC from the outset.
The difference being I need to put up a box and move on to other things.
Having to return and muck with complaints is a counter productive waste of
time that could be better spent with new projects.
