Solved ECC Ga-k8u-939 Tags: Memory RAM Brother Opteron Windows Vista Last response: January 10, 2013 3:40 PM in Memory Share daygall January 10, 2013 1:26:12 PM Upgrading my old box so my little brother can use it and I've found http://www.ebay.com/itm/4GB-Kit-2x2-GB-PC3200-DDR-400-E... The tower has an Opteron 180 in it, from what I think I remember the CPU controls whether I can use ECC or non-ECC right? So that means with the Opteron I can use that ECC ram correct? Since the little bro is only 9 and the box has vista 64 the Opteron 180 and an HD3850 ram is the weakest link and the last possible upgrade.
