    of course it is. Macs aren't really all that different to a PC..

    As far as I'm aware any Hard Drive will work with a Mac, and non-mac CD-ROM can be used. You'll save a lot not using Apple's Ram brand too, they double the market cost for theirs. You can also use any mouse or keyboard, if they're USB. You'd simply have to find a Mac Motherboard and a G4 Processor, which shouldn't be too hard.

    I'm not super familiar with Macs, but I'm assuming that they use a different power connector on their motherboards just so you have to get their PSU.
