G5 or Intel?

The G5s have a known problem with the capacitors on the logic board. I
have one that died from this, after 2 claimed "repairs" by
Apple-authorised service centres.

The symptoms are random power-downs, which grow more frequent until it
won't turn on.

I have a pack of replacement caps (about #12 on eBay) but I personally
lack the skills and another listmember who tried to do it for me found
his soldering iron couldn't shift them.
