    selling ram on ebay

    I have quite a few 1gb sticks of ram that can be matched with 1 or 2 stragglers, but all money makers.

    However, I have a bigger pile of 512mb sticks of ram. From what I have seen on ebay, even if you pair them, they are going for maybe a few $ a pair. So for those of you who sell on ebay, do you feel it is worth it to sell it at all, or perhaps in 1 big lot.

    I do have a gentlemen who stated he has a buyer at $0.75 a piece for it depending if it is DDR2 or not, but even if they are all DDR2 that is like $20 odd dollars.

    Thanks for any opinions.

    as is true in most anything, the smaller the lot, the higher the individual pieces will be

    I think you need to redo your math. at $17 a pound which is what denis is paying. $.75 a stick is right at scrap value unless they are all ddr2 with the real small black chips on them. I sell my 512mb chips in lots of 10 for $25 on ebay. After I sell all the ones I have i may start buying them again but I doubt it.

    what part of the math is wrong?

    I did $0.75 x the number of sticks and got like $22 I think.

    on another note I went through the 512, 256, and 156 stuff and found that most of it will sell as well.

    I was simply comenting that at $.75 a stick it might not be more than you can get just sending them to denis for scrap. Here are 4 examples of 512mb sticks and the scrap value of them at $17 per pound.

    ddr double sided $.84

    ddr2 double sided $.67

    ddr single sided $.64

    ddr2 single sided $.62


    Now looking on ebay at the even older stuff like pc133 a 512mb stick sells for between $3 and $5 a piece maybe a little higher in matched pairs. I might have to look into start buying these for $1 each.

    PTS, I see what you mean now. yeah the only stuff I am going to sell as scrap is the pieces that have no stickers or identifiers to them which luckily is a very small amount.

    Depends on how long you want to wait for your money. I think one of the buyers here will buy good ram at better than scrap prices as well and you dont have to wait for some one to see your ad on ebay. I believe it has to be 1 gig or better....dont quote me though
