eMac?

Hmmm, nothing new here for a while. I'm in the process of buying a house and moving so my projects are on hold for the moment. Gives me time to think about esoteric questions like... Has anyone ever investigated putting an eMac motherboard in a CC? Are they bigger than iMac boards? Since they are relatively cheap, I thought people might be willing to experiment with them, and they have been made with decent enought speeds (700-1250 mhz).

I had done some searching on

I had done some searching on ebay for an eMac mobo but couldn't find any. They aren't nearly as cheap as iMac mobos, are they? What sort of prices have you found for them and where?

eMacs may present a similair problem that slot loading iMacs raise. There are only a few (3) acceptable resolutions and resfresh rates that they will output. And the default one (the one used during startup) is way out of the CC's range. I had success using a differet crt and AB but then you get into all the plastic surgery issues.

I just meant that eMacs themselves are cheap, so experimenting with one wouldn't be unreasonable.
