I plan to build server with XEON processor and does it better for me to get ECC ram or non-ECC ram - i read many places and they said that these days ram are stable and no point to get ECC Ram.

Please give me your opinion

thank you

Is the server used for a business and need to be on all the time? Is it essential for you business? Meaning it the computer gives a wrong data, due to a memory error, and causes loss of thousands of dollars, then if yes, I would get an ECC memory.

It really depends on the application.

if it is a database server, I would use ECC.

mail,web, file server in most cases can get away with using non-ECC

This is for hosting business assuming which involved in everything

does ECC and NON-ECC make any differences on the performance?
