So yeah I need 2 gigs of ram for my eMac 1.42ghz model.

I found this but I don't know if there is anywhere to get it for less $.

Doesn't it have to be low-density or something? Or will this work?

Yes, it has to be low density non ECC DDR, PC2700 or higher.
All linked by me above are correct type. If it's not described in auction - ask seller. You'll certainly find a better deal than $90 for 2GB.
Avoid no name sticks unless they are tested to work in Mac. 99% of branded stick (of correct type) will work.

I found some Axiom branded 2x1gb sticks on ebay for $64. I think I might go for those.
