i need 2 x 256mb pc1066 ram for my dell dimension 8250 but i need to know if it only takes non ECC or ECC type if yall kno anything and where to find it cheap say something cause this ram is expensive and hard to find.
ECC can find and correct some memory errors, but it comes with a performance price: it will slow your system by about 2%. Fortunately, memory errors are rare in today's memory chips, so most average users don't have a need for ECC. If you're planning to use your system as a server or other "mission-critical" machine, we recommend ECC like Ownage mentioned. If you're looking for maximum speed, I recommend non-parity.
As for the links to where to get it, here are some I'm throwing in:
