The LCD screen maybe- However I am sorry I will have to give you a definite no on the dual processor g3. There is a few overclocking tutorials for it out there, and You could paint the case.

Two free Macs! Sweet. You can't physically make a dual g3, but you can connect the
Macs to make them work together. That takes some specialized software and a switch.
There is really no reason to unless you want it used for server or render duty. Mod them
both! Why not, they are free and are still viable computers. You can check out my articles for some hardware upgrade tips.

I forgot to say the LCD is possible, but difficut and not really worth it anyway.

or, you could try xgrid. I would love to see someone put something like this together in a sweet mod.

Yea a mini x-grid would be cool (just for fun anyway). But doesen't it need special written applications? Or have i misunderstood something?

that looks interesting. if you dont need to write your own software for it i mighht possibly do it because i only know a little BASIC and c/c++.

would be a good game server/machine too.
