Cant afford to retire the geriatric shed and garage PC's just yet, but need to breeth a little more speed into them with the bloat that is firefox being the only thing they really get used for (and some programming stuff on the garage one) if I max them out to 2 gigs it should last a while longer.

So any 1 gig DDR 400's floating around unwanted?

I understand, can't let go of my old XPC and had to get RAM earlier this year as well.  Computer One is good at $40 per GB: http://computerone.co.nz/product/transcend/e71467
The delivery time is not always the best, but mostly good service/price.

These are SFF HP and acer machines I got for $$SFA from somewhere so not really keen on spending close to a hundred a piece on them just for ram, was hoping someone may be decomissioning some stoneage work PCs and have some spare before sending the computers off to the graveyard.

Believe me, as soon as I have sorted out some other things I will be springing for some i5's with 4 or 8 gigs to replace these things.
