Well, the G3 is NOT an ATX standard compliant case, but with a series of modifications, specifically revised mounting points and some backpanel adjustment you CAN accomodate a mATX standard board in this case like I did. There are a bunch of posts in this Forum and elsewhere in WWW describing different methods to fix the motherboard in place.
But some serious metallwork is required! Good luck!
Your work is very tempting. I have 1 question - does 'serious metalwork' means we have to do drilling? Thank you.

Yes it does, plus cutting some sheetmetal. A small Dremel tool may be your best friend.

Pretty cool! Wish I could rebuild something like a Power Mac G4, but I don't have that OR the parts.

I couldn't bring myself to butcher my G3 this way. Mine is still in pristine condition from 1994. She's maxed out on everything but still runs perfectly.

It hurts a little to see this, but it's funny too :lol:

(I'm talking about the toilet paper mod).
