How to know if the logicboard is replaceble

Power Mac G5 Logicboard

I have a mac G5 with a busted logic board.

I bought a new one but it has only 1 CPU slot and 4 Memory slots, mine had 2 CPU and 8 memory slots.

How can i know if my hardware (CPU, memory, videocard, etc) is compatible with this g5 logicboard that seems to be a different model.

I have a late 2003 mac g5, with serial number xb34723fnvs.

Here is your model:

Looks like you bought the board for one of the two earlier machines.

Power Macintosh G5 1.6 (PCI)1.6 GHz PowerPC 970 (G5)

Power Macintosh G5 1.8 (PCI-X)

It should work for you but will only take one of your processors.
