Are ECC memory modules important to have on a non-critical server?
I was thinking about getting myself a toy dedicated server for lots of random, non-critical stuff. Sporadic reboots are no big deal. I'm looking at one provider but the prices are insanely cheap. Their hardware sounds like a joke for any any serious server box: desktop processors, non-ECC RAM, no-name chassis, no hotswap SATA HDD, etc. (well, the price justifies it, I guess).
I take ECC memory for granted on any "serious" server, so I'm wondering if it's a big deal or not for "toy" appliances.
