On the older boards at least the base memory was located on the motherboard itself as dos would report 640k + however many MB of chips you had installed. But I think that most modern motherboards will simply not allow you to boot without a RAM chip installed.

Always wanted to do a display of exploded PC parts, all labelled up and on view on a board or similar...but running, connected together, using an old CRT or similar in a display cupboard running a "Welcome to the IT Suites" info board type thing.
I have an old IDE drive somewhere with a perspex top cover that I was playing with..never quite found the time though.
