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
