    What to do with older Rambus parts

    I am not sure what I should do with my old Rambus P4 parts. I have 512mb of RD-800 ram, and 512mb of RD-1066 ram. To go with this I have a P4 1.9, and 2.0a with two Asus P4t-533c mobos.
    To top it off I have a 3.2 Northwood and an ECS mobo, but no spare DDR memory.

    Should I sell all the Rambus stuff to get the Northy running for a Linux box, or should I just sell everthing? Is the old Rambus stuff even worth anything? It seems Rambus is still pricey, but there does not seem to be much of a market.


    I guess what I am asking, is if selling any of this is even worth my time.

    Thanks for any input!

    Eh, RD RAM never did last, but you could probably sell it for a decent price on ebay, or trade it off to someone on the forums for DDR ram depending on your needs.

    Rambus is worth more $ wise then the stuff has a practical application. Look up the price of a new 512MB 1066 stick on newegg
    Part out the systems and sell them on ebay, people here know better then to buy Rambus gear
    $300 for your CPU
    $500 for your GFX card
    $100 for your memory
    $200 for your motherboard
    $9.99 for your PSU

    Having a CHEAP power supply take out your computer PRICELESS.
