A 120G disk is still usable. I assume it's PATA? Unless you have maxed
out your IDE slots in all your computers you can use it as a backup or a
clone. I just had a 200G PATA disk die, and while I am no longer buying
PATA disks, *I could use it*.
As for memory sticks, I have already maxed them out. Anything less than
1G is probably only of use in keeping ancient motherboards running, and
even then, those systems benefit most from adding memory.
