Quick-will this memory work?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am looking at 1gb of ECC registered memory. I know the drawbacks and performance losses that come along with that memory, but Its going in an old POS rig that I use for folding and need more memory in ( and its super cheap). Will ECC registered memory work in a regular old desktop computer?

It 'should' work , but no guarantees, sometimes the motherboards have to support ECC for the memory to work.
