You have a good approach. Stick to a budget and hold on to the 733.

I acquired a used Quicksilver DP 1Ghz G4 and I still kept my old G4-400Mhz.
I am glad that I have both. I use them both fairly often and I find it is
useful to have a backup machine. I fully expect to get a further 5 years of
use out of both systems. Who knows what will happen but that is what I am
hoping for.

Get an external drive and using Carbon Copy Cloner back everything up and
away you go!
