I should clarify that a bit, I meant to say that there's no killer app in the mainstream market. How many average joe and hardcore PC gamers run VMs, massive content creation projects, hosting hundreds of clients and number crunching on a daily basis? Far few and in-between. The only applications where the demand for more memory is constant clearly fall into domain of the professional arena. It is also where you probably want to get ECC modules since data integrity and stability are #1 here.
