It doesn't look like Kingston manufacture these particular modules anymore, but they do match the specifications for the machine, so I would say that it is OK to install them.

Yes, that'll work fine, the KVR400/1GR is generic PC3200 DRAM and your GX270 would have been supplied with  PC2700 DDR333.  Ideally don't mix the two but using one type is fine.  The GX270 will take upto 4GB in 4x1GB sticks
