I did this several years ago.  Settled on a PowerMac G4 'Digital Audio'
with 1.5GB RAM, PCI SATA card, GeForce 4Ti graphics card, UltraSCSI card,
dual-layer DVD writer, CPU upgraded to 1.4Ghz G4 (single CPU, since so few
OS 9 applications ever supported more than one CPU), and another PCI card
or two I can't remember at the moment.  I have a wiring harness to adapt a
standard ATX power supply to the system, so I don't have to worry about
hunting down or repairing Apple's power supplies years down the road. 
Hopefully this will work as long as my Mac 128k (27 years and counting).
