    Specs:
    Late 2013 27" iMac, iPad 3, iPhone 6s+, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, El Capitan
    You could remove the hard drive from the dead G5 and place it in an external USB or Firewire hard drive enclosure. Hook the drive\enclosure to your new iMac and backup all the data to either your internal hard drive or DVDs.

    Regards.

    That's what I would try to do as well, it might be your only option too.
