Cheap? and for ZFS if it's a dual purpose HTPC/NAS, maybe.
That's all I can come up with at least.
I meant NAS, not HTPC. ZFS is not required to run a NAS, my media server uses XFS as it is more optimised for large files than even Ext4. Even though I use SnapRAID I still use ECC as it prevents bit flipping and thus file system corruption. And considering ECC RAM is about the same price as non-ECC RAM (but with higher latency due to error checking) I've decided to use ECC RAM in my server.
But there are people who simply don't care about ECC RAM and use regular RAM in their server. If this board doesn't support ECC RAM then it's still a great option as long as not a lot of transcoding is required.
