lf you are still thinking about this problem you can get a replacement board installed at DT&T service.

But I have a unit that came in from a client that had the board replaced by Apple and it failed after a year. The G5 iMac is really a waist of money. Would suggest doing as rab777hp suggests and cut your loss and buy a new intel iMac. The unit is strong and reliable.

I love the G5 iMac. They break easy and bring in a lot of income, plus just three screws and you're into it. The Intel has to be gotten to via taking off the screen and putting those four hidden screws back in the LCD that are almost blind is a major pain. The G5 can be gotten into in under a minute. Diagnostics are simple, look for burn spot on the power supply, look for the bulging capacitors, look for the motherboard crack. The power supply is an easy repair. On the latter two you sell them a new Intel machine charge for removing the hard drive on the old machine, cleaning up the data, file migration and software updates. The customer is happy and you can part out the old machine and sell the parts on eBay. I love the G5, I just wouldn't want to own one.

Oh, if you still need that part, iFixit is out of stock and I would do as MacTech said.

Doesn't look like iFixit sells them, but for that price and time/effort, you're better purchasing a new unit.
