Here’s the deal:
My server needs a reinstall, but really it needs a hardware update.
From core2quad to ryzen 2400G.
The question is, do I use the extra ram i have lying around (4x4gb ddr4-3000 gskill sticks from 2014),
or grab some ECC ram since it’s my home/small business server? Any speculation on if/when ddr4 will go down in price? server is linux using zfs for data storage, if it makes any difference (might jump to freenas for the reinstall).
I figure I can use the stuff I have, and upgrade to ECC when it’s cheaper, but I’d like to hear everyone else’s insights.
- non-ECC is fine
- ECC sooner is better
- Upgrade later, not critical
