Building a new pc, and was wondering which DDR Ram is better.

KINGSTON 512MB DDRAM PC2100 ECC CL2.5 or KINGSTON 512MB DDRAM PC2100 NON ECC CL2.5?

ECC is a little more expensive, you usually only need ECC if you are gonna be a server otherwise you might as well get the non ecc and save some cash

it's just ram that error checks the data stream as it comes in, but ram errors rarely cause a problem, they are used in server environments because in a server environment you need to meet what is called the seven nine's...which means

99.99999% uptime

My new pc will be somewhat like a server. :p It'll stay 24/7 (if that is possible) so my family can upload and whatnot on my pc.

what would you recommend?
oooo, the dragon... GOOD choice man. That sucker rocks. I'll have to go take a look-see at the RAM specs for it. It sports the VIA chipset though, but It's supposed to be one of the best in spite of that. I notice too it doesn't support the newer ATA133 standard, but ATA100 is still damn fast. Let me go take a look and see what I can find.

2 IBM 120 GB 7200 RPM 120GPX

Ditch the Thermaltake cooler heard some bad stuff about it. Go with the Thermalright SK-6. Can't say enough about it. :D

Actually I think I'm going to get the Swiftech MCXC370. Read a review. Said it was a good buy and performs excellent.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
