ECC is 'Error Correcting Code' enabled RAM, typically used in servers. ECC requires motherboard support.
I don't know if ECC ram will work in non-ECC motherboards. On a Dell server I have, non-ECC ram worked although the unit had shipped with ECC ram.
I'm not sure about what 'registered' means. I've seen it associated with memory but never bothered to research the term.
I've never been able to appreciate the sublime arrogance of folks who feel they were put on earth just to save other folks from themselves .." - Donald Hamilton

CC Registered is typically used in server applications. %99 of the time you cannot use registered RAM in systems that do not accept registered ram. RAM that is just ECC can be used in some cases. Check with memory suppliers they have a wealth of info on their sites for detailed info. Go to www.crucial.com or www.diahmemory.com
