Is ECC Memory worth the additional cost?
on Oct 7, 2002 at 3:29:43 pm

I'm about to order a new PC with 1GB RDRAM.

If it was e.g. a mission-critical e-commerce server w/ my business depending on it, I would spend the ADDITIONAL $300 in a heartbeat.

But I'm just a hobbyist that wants a screaming PC for DV-NLE.
In your experience, is ECC memory justified for that? Would it make a significant difference e.g. for the stability of my system?

I am using nonECC RDRAM, 1GB with Win2KPro and have never had a problem with capture, edit or export.

This has nothing to do with NLE, but rather the design parameters of the motherboard you will be using. And often the quality of the memory can be more important than if it is ECC or not. Assuming you are ordering an i850e chipset based motherboard rather than an i860, I'm not aware of any that require ECC RDRAM.
