Opteron Processors have an integrated memory-controller, so it depends solely on your processor, NOT the motherboard what type of memory you can use.
ALL Opterons require registered memory - ECC is not mandatory, but nearly all registered DIMMs('sticks' of memory) also support ECC. You can usually enable or disable ECC in BIOS, tho
