My local gamer PC shop was easily able to find desktop mobos with ECC
for me; they have a summary of the spec sheets from somewhere. They'd
never actually sold one, nor any ECC memory, but they knew how to
order it.

It's kind of tedious to go through the motherboard manuals yourself,
which is why I was lazy and called a shop. (These are our dev
machines @ Blekko...)
