EDO (Extended Data Out) is very old-school RAM. (We're talking original 66MHz Pentium here). The one that you have is most likely from an old server. Not much use for it nowadays. Most machines in the last 10 years or so will be using some form of DDR (Double Data Rate) RAM. The only people you really would be able to sell it to would be either someone looking to fix up an old school machine for nestalgia reasons, or someone who just likes to collect old PC hardware. I think I still have a few sticks of EDO somewhere from an old Pentim machine. (As well as some really old 30-pin DIMMS that I used on my old Gravis Ultrasound sound card...) I may have tossed it out however in my last basement purge/cleanup session... You could always try tossing it up on EBay, but I wouldn't expect much. My guess is that they are probaly in the 4MB to 8MB size. Maybe 16MB, but that might be pushing it...


there's still business that have old servers with ultra old legacy software that doesn't have any modern port; i know because i have one client with just that.

I have some similar sticks in my old DX-66, it's lovely and boots Win 3.1 in minutes.

LMAO

i've had a Pentium MMX 200Hz with 256MB of RAM booting Windows 2000 in a couple of minutes (enough time to drink a coffe); when i installed XP on that same puter i could eat dinner while it was booting and sometimes it wasn't enough :woot:
i've even made some photoshops designs in that same puter :rofl:
