Memory type? (ECC vs non-ECC)

We're finalizing our specs for our next beowulf cluster... and I had a 
question...

ECC or non-ECC memory?  Motherboard "supports" ECC memory mode... although 
non-ecc memory is cheaper so we can get more...
How does this realistically affect performance?

comments?
Thanks
