I found several of these in some pc's I was scrapping for parts. What are they? I'm not a hardware whiz, but are these my memory?

You cannot tell how large a module is by looking at it (unless it's stamped with the size)

Those are worth ALOT (considering their age and useage). They're expensive as hell up here in Nova Scotia... I don't know about where you're living. I can buy a 32mb module of 72 pin ram for $80 if i'm lucky. I sold four 16mb modules for $60 after I fried my old motherboard... and that was about 4 months ago.

Yes, they are. But these SIMMS aren't made anymore... they're trying to force people to upgrade. Since they're so scarce... they're so expensive :) Further forcing people to upgrade.

I sure do wish they were 512mb PCMIA though.
