The easiest thing to do would be to go to Crucial.com and put in either your motherboard or if your computer is a name brand the model of your computer and it will tell you what you should use. ANd if you buy from them after using that they guarantee it will work.

(Error Correction Code) - A method of checking the integrity of data in DRAM. ECC provides more elaborate error detection than parity; ECC can detect multiple-bit errors and can locate and correct single-bit errors.

most consumer motherboards support only non-ecc. because the chances of a error hapening are slim. having ecc slows down the timings(but increases reliablity) so its ment only for servers.
