    Assuming its a blue and white G3, you can run clear up to 10.4.11 on it. You can put 1GB of RAM in it and a couple hard drives. Graphics card can be upgraded to a PCI Radeon 7000 for pretty cheap and a 1GHz G3 processor upgrade can be bought brand new for $95. It all just depends on how much you're willing to spend on it. A beige G3 will only take up to 768MB of RAM and officially support OS 10.2.8 since it doesn't have built in USB or Firewire. Processor upgrades are the same for both.
