what i hear on that is that its kinda the extra deal, if u want the, BEST ram you can get this extra compatibilty and stuff.
Ide say if u want good performance, just get aton of ram, and dont worry about the registered or unbuffered ability.

Some systems will not work with one or the other so read carefully when making a purchase. I don't quite know of any obvious advantages to either type so I'll leave it there. If you do choose to max out, know that your system may underclock the RAM some too allow it to work properly.

Registered RAM puts less of a load on the memory bus than unbuffered RAM. It's usually used when you need to have lots of memory sticks like on server motherboards. It's slower than unbuffered RAM and usually more expensive. Registered and unbuffered RAM fit into the same memory socket but motherboards usually support just one or the other although they can be built to support both.
