Hi Yano

Basically registered and buffered ram have voltage control built in and are primarily used in server type situations.

Unbuffered has no such capability

ECC is error checking capable the memory itself can repair minor memory errors

unbuffered and ecc are more commonly used in PC's

Ok, so unbuffered RAM would be better than registered?

for this kind of motherboard: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Se...1356361&CatId=0

I'm thinking about getting 4GB (4 x 1GB) of RAM

Nice board I see it supports dual channel I am not very familiar with dual channel memory.

Either way common DDR will do everything ya need XP doesnt do much with over 1024MB so its kinda wasted. Unless ya run a game server
