I'm not going to bother with which ones have the most PCI slots, aparrently those are vestigial anyways. Yes this is for a DDR3 system. Yes the candles are black.

Here's the links im talking about:

The PCs at those 2 links range in price from $145 to $1512.

A major difference in performance among them.

I assume they all have working RAM in them.

I’m wondering why you want to transfer your “RAM chips” into them?

the ram chips are in case if they have empty ram slots on thier computer, and I simply add more ram. DDr 3 for so many, many reasons. One being the graphics card. It only works on ddr3 , hence I like DDr3 ram. Mabye why work better if graphics and ram match types. It works beauifully so far. so there's no point in changing that. If nothing works on there I'm getting windows 95.

Graphics card Vram and system RAM are unrelated, there is no benefit to matching types across said devices. If anything, your current GPU would work better on a more modern platform. I also dont know where you heard it only works on a DDR3 system, thats plain false.
Additionally, mixing RAM kits with yours and a new system may lead to more issues, as mixing ram is not guaranteed to work. Id take a system with a modern platform, potentially at a lower capacity, as the performance of DDR4 would be drastically better. (even then, youll likely find a system with enough RAM for your needs).
 
Random DDR 3 may or may not work when added to random DDR 3 in a working PC.

Up to you if you want to take a chance. Not at all sure you can know without trying.

May be recognized, but not work at expected speed. May not be recognized at all.

How upset would you be if it doesn't work out well? Would you want to return the new PC?

The ritual is almost over with anyways, and I appreciate and prefer honesty. You're not hurting my feelings. Okay, throwing that page of new egg out. Let's say.... is there a computer that exists can run the game Dying light 2 faster than a chainsaw on fire through a stick of jello?

And can support a graphics card that has openGL 4.0 or greater.
