    Second, its ECC

    Third, its registered memory

    Fourth, its low profile

    definitly over priced even if it is ECC and 4 GB

    you can get 8 gigs of DDR2 533 for $900.

    But i can see why that stick is so expensive, its ONE stick thats 4GB. the biggest iv seen is 2GB. Imagine having 4 sticks each 4 gigs, thats 16GB!!! But i dont think any motherboard supports over 8 gigs. And also, i think it would be faster to have 4 2 gigs instead of 2 4 gigs.

    I think this is for businesses that have lots of data on servers an such and are conserned about reliability........at that price a good business with financial stability can afford it plus it has features for reliability and security. Which is obviously not for the avg. joe/gamer. Price is not an issue, any business can get their money spent on business back from taxes. So this doesn't surprise me.

    Correct me if i'm wrong.

    I am sure the sticks are used in many servers around the world. Companies have no problem affording that.

    Does it strike anybody as odd that it's PC2700 ram and the price just happens to be $2700. I'm thinking that it's a type-o.

    All computer stuff is. That's because they know idiots like us will run out and buy it because its slightly faster. :D

    yall can say overpriced i pcan say overpriced but what if you want hte best most reliable ram in the world for a server that makes your 1000s ontop of 1000s a day/month/year.. ECC would be worth it

    yea i agree. I think this RAM is made to go in a server, not a gaming rig seeing how its only PC2700. I dont think its a type-o, 4gigs on one stick is pretty big.

    My MSI Master2FAR supports 16 gigs.. I think. It had 4 DIMMS so by math it would have to support 4 gig sticks.

    Excuse my asking, but why is it being ECC such an important point?

    bottom line it regulates the memory in and out of the RAM for more pure and no corruption at least from what i understand.. something that would be wise in a server so you are less likely to have a crash due to ram or corruption

    Just as the rarely used 2GB DDR modules are considerably more expensive than 1GB modules (and only available as registered modules for good reason), so the 4GB modules are horrendously expensive as they are only purchased by a tiny number of customers.

    Crucial have 4GB PC2100 modules on sale for a "bargain" price of US$3500 each. Do you think they sell any at that price? Yes they do, to people with Xeon-based servers that use PC2100 memory and need lots of it. Is it a rip-off? Yes, it probably is. Is it worth from the point of view of the database administrator? Also yes, even at three thousand dollars per stick if that equates to increased productivity for the company which uses the server.

    It's important to realise there is a paradigm shift between what we as home-users require from a couple of gigs of memory, and what a business requires from it's server that is central to the company operating around the clock.
