did you guys get it?i recently upgraded from 1g generic dd2 533 to a 2pc 1g Kingston dd2 667 and was wondering where do it go?ofcourse you'd tell me to just sell it, right?and i will...but then what to do with it when not sold...
Have a whole walk-in closet full of stuff. Sometimes I give them to friends/family. Have built whole PC's with left-over parts and given to aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, etc.
It's also nice to have some parts around that you know worked before in case an upgrade gives you or a friend problems. Used PC parts aren't worth much, and giving them away to help someone or using them to troubleshoot is worth more to me than the few bucks I'd get if I sold them.
Yeah, I use the parts to troubleshoot my own and others' computers. There's also the nostalgia factor and the slim chance that three hundred years from now they can be sold to museums and my descendents will be rich and famous.
I have an extra X2 3800 that I never OCed and used for 10 months.. I'm thinking of just building another cheap pc with it. I have an older pc I use as well that has 2gig of pc2700 ddr ram but I dont think I can use it on a AM2 mother board
