I've been looking at ram cause I want to finish getting the parts for my file server together and I need non ECC ram, I've looked at best direct and they got two nice 4GB kits priced at 50ish but it doesnt say if there non ECC or not...

I'm testing a SM server board with plain Gskill ram, and it booted with 32Gb installed. Simply disable ECC in the BIOS, and you'll be fine.
Actually, both my server folding boards are using plain, run-of-the-mill sticks.

This server is just for home, for my business I use much better setups.

what is the spec for the business units?

I had servers before and I went to a qnap nas box so i don't have to worry about licencing and supporting servers

Normally if ram doesn't say its ECC it isn't.

and the mobo specs clearly say non ECC, so regular desktop ram would do it. You don't need gaming ram with tight timings either, regular ram will do the job. Usually the important part at a file server is the storage subsystem as in a good RAID matrix, not the RAM. ECC RAM is mandated by the mobo specs, like in my case for example, my 2P folder does not take anything else.
