g5 logic board repair?

I don't mean to expose my ignorance, but is there anyway to repair the logic board on an apple g5. my computer is only 21/2 years old and it is dead in the water. It was to expensive for me to begin with and I definately cannot afford the $1200 a brand new logic board costs.

all advice would be greatly appriciated

If by "logic board" you mean the motherboard, then no, it's probably not repairable.

High prices are one of the "perks" of owning an apple.....enjoy.

Have you searched places like eBay?

Found this one there. Not sure if it is the same one, but it is worth checking out. The cost is less than $1200.00 as you stated.

I always wonder how these small sellers test these boards...........

$7 for a working G5 board? I would be HIGHLY suspicious of that seller.
