what's the difference between registered and unbuffered ram? i noticed that registered is a couple bucks more expensive, but almost the same.

I'm glad this question was raised, I had it in my head while looking over crucial's ram prices and saw the two variations listed. The answers are in ther faq.

Also be careful, because they are apparently not interchangeable. I think unbuffered is the standard so that's what I'm getting.
