Is this Mushkin memory (model: 996587) non-ecc?

The memory is:
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model 996587

I have found a few data sheets on this, so I know that it is unbuffered, runs at 1.8v by standard, etc. The only thing I can not find is if it is ecc or non-ecc, so I was hoping someone here knew. I really don't want to run the risk of buying two of these kits just to find out my motherboard won't take it.

Yes. The RAM you listed in NON ECC. Also, what motherboard? Is this for a new build?

No, I am just upgrading the memory on my current machine.

Motherboard: ECS MCP61PM-HM (Nettle-GL8E)
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 Dual at 2.6 ghz
Video: GeForce 9400 GT
OS: Windows 7 (x64), thinking about triple booting w/ Ubuntu 9.04 and Menuet though.

Actually, as a side note, my motherboard can accept up to 8 gigs memory, is that total just for the RAM slots or (RAM+Misc (Like the 1776 MB on the GeForce))?
