ECC ram is used for "mission critical" apps. If your server is mission critical, then ECC may help resolve errors, if not then plain old ram should be just fine.

Are you sure your mobo can use ECC RAM? If not it will cause more problems instead of helping anything. :)
Xie beat me to it... Usually only high end motherboards like Tyan use ECC ram (actually, the higher end Tyans require it) so check your motherboard manual. For the record, ECC's not really worth it unless you're using it for something like medical photo scans unless you can get it for really cheap; it just helps sort out errors that may crop up when putting stuff in and out of ram. And, it's hardly slower. I used to build servers and the performance between those running ECC and those running non-ECC wasn't even noticeable, not even over the network. It's more of a precaution thing than anything else.
