What the heck is the difference between this ram!!

Okay up till now I was going to go with some 256 DDR 2100 ram from Crucial for 43.19 with free two day..

anyway now I found some micron ram (which I have now just sdram) which is 256 DDR and its $37.00

NOW what is this? There is micron ram that is DDR 256 2100 but its $49.00 because it says its EEC registered..or at least that is the only thing I can see that is different about it..

Okay so what does that mean and which should I go with the mocron 256 ddr 2100 for 37.00 or the crucial same thing for 43.19?

By the way what is the difference between all this 2100, 2400 and 2700? Im used to 100 and 133 now waht is this all about?

Thanx

ECC ram is Error Checking and Correcting ram. It is used for servers and workstations and such and has a slight delay so that it can check to make sure everything going through it is correct. IF you're using your computer for just home use and computer games and what not, don't get the ECC ram, it's not worth it. Also, I would suggest the Crucial over the Micron, even though they are made by the same company, I prefer getting crucial.

2100=133 FSB
2400=150 FSB
2700=166 FSB

and so on!

The higher stuff is better for overclocking

I've also heard that the higher stuff, above 2100, isn't quite as stable as PC1600 and PC2100. In terms of actual speed of memory,

1600=2000MHz
2100=266Mhz
etc.

Yeah, the higher stuff is better for overclocking like jumbojp said, but really isn't necessary.
