Default Ram Help!

hey guys, i need to ask for your advice, i am upgrading my memory and i was just wondering if you guys could enlighten me on some specs like do i want buffered or unbuffered and what ECC is all about? and after that could anyone suggest me some value memory (1 stick of gb) none of that OC Xtreme memory, im not that hardcore. just reg. mem is fine. i hear Corsair makes the best memory but thats subjective i guess?

u want unbuffered its faster, ECC means theres an extra bit for error correcting, u can't use it unless motherboard supports it,(I think). You don't need it for PC's really, 2 X 512 is the best setup just look on newegg or zipzoomfly for value RAM thatll be fine for ur purpose. DDR400, PC3200, DIMM is what your search paramiters should be.
