I assume this is a very easy question for most.  But what is the difference?

Thanks,

ECC is error correcting ram or parity ram or buffered ram. Used mostly in servers and systems where booboos are not wanted at all. It uses an extra bit to double check itself.

non-ECC is non-parity or unbuffered ram. Used  in every thing else. A little bit faster and cost less.
