I have upgrade two 8500s with a G3/500 and
a G4/350 earlier this week. Both seem to
work perfectly, given the slower buses and
drives compared to current G4 systems.

My 7600 works great with an XLR8 ZIF Carrier. The Carrier is cool because
you can buy a ZIF-card and save money next time you upgrade.
Check out <URL:http://www.macsales.com/> and <URL:http://www.blol.com/> for
good prices on G3 upgrades.
