GX240: Mixing ECC and Non-ECC Ram

    Just wanted to be sure before we purchase more ram. Can we mix ECC and
    non-ECC ram on a Dell Optiplex GX240? I understand from most post
    that it will only disable the ECC function. Is that correct with the
    GX240? Will it automatically disable it? The manual just says not to
    mix the two. It seems hard to find ECC ram on EBAy.
    Thanks for your help

    Dell normally says if it's all right to mix memory types. I'd believe
    them. Since there are only 2 DIMM slots, why not just replace both.
