My iMac G5 17" just died this morning. I woke it from sleep mode and it froze up with vertical lines going down the screen. Now it gives me a blue screen with vertical lines whenever I boot it up. Judging by what I read from multiple sources, this is a logic board failure. That being said I think I am finally ready to upgrade Intel and was wondering if any parts are interchangeable between the iMac G5 and a white Intel iMac? I figured I might be able to save some money if I can salvage the RAM, the HDD, the DVD drive, or maybe even the screen. Also, given the iMac's susceptibility to logic board failure and other problems, should I buy a 2006 Intel iMac as I planned, or would it be more worth it to break the bank and buy a 2006 mac pro?
