it won't be long that you'll find it for desktop pcs. Still it's really good for servers that need the memory but doesn't have enough room to have it.

I don't think we'll see 4 GB sticks for a while yet in normal PCs. 1 GB sticks only just became more popular these past few months.

You won't be able to use those things on x86 platforms... maybe one stick to max you out, but no more. 64bit patforms open up the use of more ram... but do you know how much a stick of that will cost? Last I looked, a 2GB stick of ECC ram cost upwards of $1500-2000.

2GB stick of PC3200 ECC from a reputable dealer on Pricewatch was just over $325... just under $500 for a 2GB ECC module from OCZ. That's a far cry from $2000.

Corsair already has a 4GB ECC PC2700 stick, but at over $3000, forget it.

ah see, the RAM I've been looking at recently is along these lines:

perhaps the consumer level RAM is a bit cheaper Smile

First off, that's DDR2. Secondly, that's also from a server manufacturer... Sun's memory kits are horribly overpriced as well.

Compare to this.
