G5 smashed, would be great to know what broke & missing

hope some one could help on this one: someone dropped a G5 (2,3 dual core) and well, they stripped it from its memory, harddrive an optical drive.
because there wasn't much left they. I could have it.
I would like to know:
if i could check the prosessor w/o the memory (propably not but who knows)
if i could check the graphics card? (maybe in a windows pc, can't find what kind of graphics card it is, only that it is Nvidea)
and if i could break it even more by trying some random DDR strips i have laying around, or does the G5 "just don't work" if i try, should it be exactly the stock memory?
problem is that i don't know very much of apple but i do understand some normal hardware logic. also there aren't many people who drop there mac i hope i can get it running again!
it can still be turned on but nothing more, after a few secs the fans are going crazy to protect everything. but wel i would do the same when my memory is missing
sorry for bad grammar and other language problems!

You need at least one stick of memory...Mac memory to be safe. With out the HD youll get a flashing ?. I would reseat the video card. Youll have some idea if the machine comes up.
