Wanted: G3 Tower parts.

In an effort to reduce the kludginess of my AIO, i have a plan, I am going to turn my G3 (with some spare parts i have) into a PowerMac Beige G3 tower.

I need these parts so far:

Personality card: Will do fine with just audio, but I am hoping for Video also, but then again, it's just a passing thought

1x Beige Minitower case. I need one with a PSU, or i need to know if i can get an off the shelf PSU and use that in the case (yes, i already know the G3 board's have the pin setting for ATX) I am hoping to have all the bezels. I might have to fashion one into a Jaz Drive Panel.

Case fan with the Minitower MUST be included (if there is one), I just need the case and the PSU, extras are not needed, but i will welcome them, But i want to keep the shipping down.

I am going to stay with the built-in video and went ahead and bought a DB15 - VGA/SGVA block I am trying to spend as little as possible. Shipping will be to:

68132 Omaha, Nebraska, USA

Please, i don't want to try to do overseas shipping as it will be too expensive for me.

I can trade with some goods and I can spend money

Up for grabs are:
StyleWriter II
Quicktake 150 (minus floppies to use it, no idea where to get the software) Comes with PSU and filter, and I think i can find the case for it...
S-Video/Composite to vga adapter: allows passthru of VGA, but allows you to do video input from S-Video and Composite. Comes with Stereo sound passthru as well, will switch over when pressing the adapter switch.

I will have the Personality card from the AIO free, so i can let that go, it's not got the video option though. just sound, and the Video for the internal display.

1x 233MHz AIO CPU (it's actually all of the G3's, but you already know that Wink )
i got some old ram sticks (i think i got a couple of PC-100 dimms, don't know what size, but i can check)
PM 7200 Cache stick, still known to work last i checked
i will add some more in there if i know what i can give up. Drop me a PM thru Applefritters system, or you can email me at:
