With that much memory in a server, non-ECC seems rather a risk.  A new
Dell 3.0Ghz Pentium-D dual core 2G ECC ram 2x250G SATA is about $700 delivered
in the continental US (SC440).  (Just bought one for home - very quiet.)  Then
there are older SC400 models on ebay and such - typically 2.8Ghz Pentium 4.
Maybe if the tip jar gets big enough? (...goes to get wallet...).
