    Unless you have a motherboard aimed at the server market (i.e. dual CPU sockets, onboard SCSI RAID, etc) then you can't use ECC. Buy non-parity as JSR instructs. Consult your motherboard's manual.

    dont buy ECC - as has been said - unless u have a server mboard then it wont support ecc - and its incredebly expensive
    and if u want my opinion buy Corsair - not Crucial
