It is true that, with newer RAM modules, the USB 2.0 eMac can use 2GB RAM. Usually you have to get PC3200 but that works OK (they are backwards compatible).
However, finding a UK vendor that knows this may be a problem Most people around here looking for UK RAM vendors are directed to Crucual's UK site. However, Crucial USA tend to only spout Apples outdated specs as in this page:
The problem is in finding Mac-compatible PC3200 modules that work in a Mac without Crucial's RAM searcher. That means finding another Mac that uses that type of module. It turns out the first G5 iMacs used 1G 184-pin PC 3200 modules so those should work:
The ones I know definitely work are from a US site:
We have one in our 1.42G eMac next to a 256MB module and both are fully recognized.
