It's an Intel - Core 2 Duo 2.16 Ghz
If it were a G5 iMac, I wouldn't even bother. I've spent enough hours of
my life on those things.

  G5 or Intel?

  The G5s have a known problem with the capacitors on the logic board.
  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
  won't turn on.

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