Computer with ECC RAM support
I am assembling a CHEAP PC for long-term numerical computations under linux (mostly single threaded, which may take a month and longer). Therefore need ECC support (I believe non-buffered ECC is fine). The motherboard must support 32GB. Don't play games or any 3D graphics.
which motherboards/CPU would you advise?
which ECC RAM do you use?
I already have Corsair 430CX PSU, HDD and ATX case.
Input/output to HDD will be very low.
I am thinking about buying some refurbished Dell server from sale, but afraid that it has an non-standard power connector (I already have one very old Dell motherboard like this and could not find a converter for it).
I never had experience with ECC supporting hardware, so any advise is useful.
