Dead iMac G5, Use as Display?

My iMac G5 (17", ALS model) died about a year and a half ago (logic board went on it...). It's been sitting around for a while, and I wondered if it could be used as an external display. Basically the same idea as Mac4Brains, just with a PowerPC iMac.

I tore it apart, following iFixit's Guide to check out everything inside.

If anyone has figured it out before or knows anything, let me know!
Yesterday it worked. Today it is not working. Windows is like that.

I would part it out, or sell it as it is on ebay. 17" lcd monitors are cheap on craigslist, if your patient. I just bought a 17"dell for $45. I would guess your dead imac is worth a little more.

Those G5 imacs do look good though.
