    sorry it wont, different size imacs use different sized motherboards,also installing that board is definitely going to be a feat to do on its own

    How do you know it is the motherboard and not another component?

    There was only one model 800Mhz 17" iMac and the only differences between your 700MHz model and it is slightly faster clock speed and a better model of the same video chip. The size and features are the same. The processor is the same as well, just running at a 800MHz instead of 700MHz.

    They should be interchangeable, but please be aware that the G4 iMac is probably the most difficult of the iMacs to work on.
