It might be a better move to invest that money in a newer CPU with a faster processor and PCI slots. I have a couple of surplus Motorola (Mac motherboards) CPU's if you're interested.

To get the PCI slots, you need to change the entire CPU, not just the motherboard. The Motorola's I have are complete units. One is a desktop and the other is a mini tower. I think I have a G3-300 card also. I could do a data transfer for you as well. If interested, let me know. I haven't given much thought as to their worth, but it would not be very expensive.

I think Peter is right. A nice 7300 or 7600 machine should be pretty cheap these days. SCSI scanners of similar quality to the Epson you just bought are going to be expensive. If you get an older cheapo SCSI model it just won't be in the same league.
7300's and 7600's can use your current hard drive, keyboard, mouse and other scsi peripherals. G3 upgrades cards are not too expensive now. PCI slots for USB and/or Firewire upgrades make them very practical machines. The case design is also very easy to open and get access to the guts.
