Depends on your motherboard sometimes but I would say 90% of the time it would be fine, the only time you really actually need ecc is if you have a multi socket board. There are exceptions to that as well but generally speaking at least

Socket 775 Xeon don't use ECC. The ones that does are socket 771 and the rams are actually FB-DIMMs.

depends what you are doing with them, if it is just for normal desktop use then no, for server use it is recommended especially if it's being used for something like a NAS. But it's not needed
