I guess a decorative piece. They are really cool and unique with their lampshade design and I would love to have one on my bedshelf on display! So I would just set it up somewhere where it looks good. You could always part it out if you don't want to put it on display.

Well I don't know how much a PSU would cost, but if it's less than buying a used G4 off of eBay or CL and then taking that one, then it might not be worth it.

What are the specs for the G4?

Most of the time, PSU failures are a bad cap. This isn't hard or expensive to replace. No matter what you do, don't recycle it. I would keep it for decoration or simply buy a cheap PSU for it. Give the MacRumors Marketplace a shot if you want some dough for it.
