ECC stands for Error Correction Circuitry. RAM sticks have random read/write "failures" that you don't notice. This is normal operation. There are a bunch of factors that affect the frequency of this errors. For a single computer Non-ECC RAM is more than fine because the time between these "failures" is very long. However, large clusters and servers that are extremely busy systems have more frequent memory "failures" that can cause a system crash that is not acceptable. Hence the need of ECC RAM.
For the Mini 9 you will be more than fine with Non-ECC RAM to answer your question.
On what to get, I would suggest you max the Mini to 2GB of RAM and there is a good guide on what to get here on this thread.
