take apart imac dv

i was wondering if anyone has taken apart an imac and made it into another computer. like put it into a desktop...we have an imac the the monitor went out on and was thinking of a way to save it. the vga out works fine. if any one has any expirence and could give some advice that would be great. i have a few pc cases and an old 7200 case that could be converted. (pictures would be great) thanks.

Upgrade the firmware, the display may work again.

See Article 86117 on Apple's knowledgebase.
