Mac parts?

so the other day my friend gave me a broken imac g5, and some parts are missing, where is a good resource and site where I won't be ripped off for mac parts?

the specific part i'm looking for is the Hard drive backet and temperature sensor, and possibly the fan duct cover.

some capacitors on this logic board are blown, but can be replaced easily for only a few dollars.

it's the 17" model. not sure what the model number is, just mixing and matching parts right now.

ive managed to get an emac that was plagued by the bad capacitors working. and it's been working great! also managed to repair an old ibook g3 the all white verison with the powerpc 750 processor. lol. lets say I'vfe taken up a hobby by fixing old mac machines.
if anyone can lend a helping hand to help me find these parts would be great. or have a parted out imac g5.

Your best bet would probably be to buy another G5 in a state of disrepair off of eBay. So long as the parts you're looking for are working, it's a best bet; just find out from the seller what's unresponsive just to be sure. I'm not sure that you can buy the parts individually; you might have to strip another computer for one.

Either that or see if you can find a seller willing to sell you just the parts. (Not likely, but worth a shot).

and who might be this macdoc?

I can boot up the compter.. obviously there is no hard drive. so it won't detect anything. but it does detect if I throw in a tiger cd in.

Just need the hard drive bracket.
