Yeah, just looked. Min 256MB of ECC memory.
Actually found out what it is that I just got. An NCR Worldmark 4455
server, No CPU's , memory, or disks.
Long term financial project I think!

I think the main reason they're selling them is because the PIII can only do
dual, and so that people are using Slot II and can upgrade to a monster
cache one later if they want.
Phil, I would expect them to want ECC, because they're server boards.
However, ECC is only about 10% more expensive now.. (www.crucial.com
are very nice , and 11 quid shipping)
