A faster G3 or a G4 would be total overkill for SIMS. I handle 800
accounts on a 66Mh 601 box! It doesn't even sweat. You would be better
suited to by two older boxes and then use your G3 from something requiring
some processing (CGI, DB stuff, etc.) Consider LinuxPPC if you want some
real server power out of the box.

So, yes, it will probably work, but IMHO you are wasting your money.
