this type of ram used a parity bit to be sure that it's data was valid- 
typically found in server class machines.  i don't believe our macs 
even support this type of ram and i do know that when you do have a 
machine that supports it, all of it has to be ecc ram - you can't mix 
it.  generally you only buy it when your required to, and it costs more.
