How Much Gold, Palladium and Silver is Contained in RAM Memory Sticks?
Is it worthwhile to start a small business of recovering these precious metals from the scrap computers people are throwing away here?
Personally, I wouldn't bother with it. The amounts are miniscule and you will earn more selling the RAM individually usually. If you're talking hundreds of RAM sticks that are DDR2 and worthless, then potentially, yes.
I cannot tell you exact amount, but I know that there are enough precious metals in computer motherboards and other boards to run such a business. There may be about 0.5 gram of gold in 100 RAM sticks. But I have mentioned, that I am not sure about that. You should consult some specialist here.
Off course, the amounts of scrap must be enormous, to earn real money.

I'm just curious to see whether or not you would choose one over the other and why.
