Just a quick update here too on this. I am digging a little deeper about this board as it makes little sense knowing what I have found out about ECC and Buffered RAM that this board is actually ECC.
XFX's site is rubbish and they have no pre-sales tech support. (Guess this is no news to you guys) so I have poked a few e-tailers.
The site I have looked at where I saw 'ECC' on the board spec is this one.
Looking at not only related products (only one other 750i board by EVGA) as well as the other XFX 780i and 790i boards they are all marked up as non-ECC and unbuffered. Makes no sense to me why one single board would be ECC and speaking with eBuyer's sales tech team they agree it is almost completely unlikely the board is ECC and buffered.
So maybe Scan.co.uk have their tech info wrong on their site to begin with and this is a non-issue...

The information shown is not right and I've just changed this to the correct types of memory.
As such, this will be reflected on the website specifications shortly.
So I guess the ram I have been looking at will work after all.
