ECC = Error Checking and Correcting. This means each time an item is read from RAM, it is self checked to see if an error occurred, and also some errors can be corrected automatically.

So ECC RAM is often used in mission critical computers. It's also somewhat more expensive.

PS - the motherboard also needs to support ECC in order for it to be used.
