Well it has been awhile since I bought it! You are right, it is an intel based iMac.

Thank you both for your help. The only other thing I can say about it is that the message that appears saying I must restart the computer happened occasionally, but became worse. At first I would just reset the computer then it would work for a day or two without any problems. Now it will not get past the grey apple screen with the loading ring on startup without having the kernel panic.

I looked back at some of the paperwork from when I took it into apple to get it fixed, they first installed a new fan which did not help. The second time they said that the kernel panic happened even with an external hard drive. From there they basically told me to buy a new computer.

If you all think that it would not be wise to try to get it repaired, do you think the $200 is a good offer to take? I have about 8-10 people asking about it, so I do not know if the specs might point toward a higher parts resale value.
A few specs:
2.8ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
2Gb 800mhz ddr2 sdram
320gb seriel ata drive
Nvidia GeForce 8800

Thanks again!
