Are there pci cards you can install old system ram into? I have my old ddr3 ram and thought I might be able to use it as a disk solely for virtual ram.

It used to exist back in the DDR/DDR2 days:

 

I doubt anyone makes one anymore, as the controller chip was extremely expensive and the capacity was pretty small.

There was an LTT video on one of these types of things before:

To my knowledge there is no modern version of this type of product, since SATA SSDs have gotten so cheap anyways
