Hello and welcome to MF!

First off, sort to hear about the G5, they really are great machines (having owned one myself).

However, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but there is no way you could do what your asking. The mounts on the case to hold the Logic Board in place are completely different and the internal design of the case (and every component) is totally different too.

Have a look for a good used Mac Pro or even one of the new iMacs. Either off these machines will be significantly faster than the G5 tower.

Alternatively if the G5 was fast enough you could try and get a replacement logic board fitted, although this may also be rather expensive.
