Don't despair. Because of the outrageous cost of a new logic board (and refurbished ones aren't too cheap either I gather), seek out your nearest electronic repair shop to find someone who's prepared to solder in new capacitors. They cost about US$1 each I believe. A number of M-F members have had logic boards repaired this way.

If you're prepared and feel confident to remove and replace the logic board yourself, you'll save considerable labour costs. There are manuals and online video instructions on opening up an iMac.
