Fully working you’re looking around $20-$35

Honestly if it boots to dos/windows whatever I’d be inclined to scrap it and sell the ram online.

When it works, yes.
The market if very volatile .
It cou be $5 today, $50 on Wednesday and $3 on Friday
But the value is there. It’s a product that works best on ebay as fixed price 30 day buy it now sales. As opposed to auctions, . So that you don’t get 50 bids on Wednesday and have them all cancel out on Friday when the price tanks again.

I’ve been suggesting memtest for a while as my go to tool for testing ram on working and semi working computers. It’s a bootable live disk. And you can put it on a floppy, usb stick, or CD-ROM.
It’s free, and well not fully open source the components are all available individually elsewhere if you ever wanted to break it down. Or are an open source advocate.
