recovering from water damage, what parts are suspect?

Son spilled water on his imac. The display is untouched and the hard drive at this point works. Right now computer is completely dead. I'm sure the mother board must be replaced. The optical drive, not sure. If I replace the mother board and processor, is it possible to ressurect the machine?

Neither the apple insider nor the my links are still working. Can you update or replace these?
