I work in a repair shop, I have 300+ sticks of RAM laying around, from DDR to DDR3 (DDR3 of 4+ GB and DDR4 are either good for replacement on new computers or are sold immediately so don't count them as laying).
Also I have 200+ hard drives, IDE, SATA, SAS, 2.5, 3.5, 20 GB to 1 TB. Lots of them.

What can I do with all this crap? Not enough matching CPU and MB to make a working system (unless I make a very obsolete one but there's no point in doing so). I also am using single hard drives for backups (only 500+ GB SATA-3 though) so I'm mostly concerned with all that old ram. What can I do with them??

    Assemble desktops and donate/sell them to primary schools or libraries. They are not crap at all

    @asgs I would if I had also motherboards and CPUs laying around 🤷🏻‍♂️

    I suppose obtaining matching components to make up complete systems would result in entire working systems with their own sets of ram and hdds anyway.

    It's a catch22 I guess. The person who would be interested in such a thing would already have more than enough of this stuff.

    Sell them for cheap on ebay or else. About a few months ago I was searching for some old RAM sticks for an older PC. I had to pay 80€ for 4GB on Amazon.

    Find someone to trade some of your shit for MBs, CPUs, video cards, PSUs and build a machine every now and then, sell it cheap to students or whoever

    Some of the DDR1 might be pretty popular with the old enthusiast croud. DDR3's still in use today, so i'd try and sell that too. DDR2 is pretty much useless.

    (I'll take an order of the largest HDDs you have lying around, please, of any interface type.)

    @Parzi I think some Cisco equipment is using DDR2. At least that's what I heard from a guy who bought a few sticks of mine 3 or so years ago.

    @gronostaj I wasn't aware of that. That's disgusting.
