ECC vs Non-ECC Memory

I am interested in purchasing the 512MB (2x256) PC800-45 RDRAM however I've been told I must purchase this same unit with ECC modules. Can you expalin what "ECC modules" are and if this is different or the same as what you are offering? Thank you.

ECC refers to Error Checking / Correction available on the memory sticks. Simply put, this type of memory is slightly more reliable than Non-ECC memory. All of the memory we sell is ECC. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
