    If is hard drive, get a new one or reformat the actual one.

    If is mother board, it would have die in no time.

    But just check it, I bet still work just fine with a new hard drive.

    Why invest $200 into a 7 year old machine? You don't know what may go next. With a Mac Pro i would understand to keep it going, as those can be massively upgraded and are still up to par with modern machines for most average uses. But a 7 year old iMac? :confused:
