Can I buy a used G5 20" iMac to replace the screen?

I have an the 20" Intel iMac, but the screen has been hashed apart by my kids. The apple repair places want to charge me $700 to replace it, so the current plan is to buy a used/broken one on ebay with a good screen. The G5's seem to be going for a cheaper price, so if I can use the screen on the G5 for the 20" I could save a lot of money.

Anyone know if this can be done?

You should be able to buy the screen for your mac for around $100, much cheaper then a G5 (Or even a dead G5) I'm not sure that G5 screens are compatible with the Intel models.
