Interface for using SSD as a DDR DIMM on the motherboard

Grippit asked
Last Modified: 2012-07-07
Sorry if this is a stupid question but...

Are there any reasons why a 2.5inch SSD (Hard Drive) Cannot be used as RAM (DDR3)?

Does such an interface exist?

Would there be any OS issues with having 128GB instead of the 'typical' 4/8GB of RAM?
