Oh well I thought I could spare like 2GB for like a linux server type of thingy for future projects and maybe sell the rest or keep it all. I have that one computer that well everybody on the internet has been like "shit on my dreams" when I've tried to get it upgraded.

The only set I see worth keeping is the first set on your list.

and the corsair XMS, you can chuck the reast or save em in a box like I have, I have a shoebox jammed with DDR2, and even some Rombis/Rombus that will never get used.

Hmm yeah I don't really know what would be smart, I mean sooner or later, more probably later I will build my next rig that I want to keep as a main one and wanting it to last for at least some years means keeping all that RAM might be useless perhaps?

Also taking into consideration is that my future rig will most probably run with DDR4.

But I could keep them and in a distant future donate them to a museum about RAM.
