Default Wanted: Long Shot for a PowerMac G5 PSU

Ok I realize it is a looooong shot to find this here, but I need a PSU for a G5 Powermac. My wife loves the old G5 but it needs a new PSU. Evil bay has redonculous prices on them, and normal mac stores don't carry anything that old (and don't seem to understand the concept that a customer might want to actually look inside the box???? Why would you want to do that instead of buy a new one?)
Anyway, I'd pay a decent price if you have one, post here or PM.
Thanks!

How about you replace the guts yourself?
a quick google search brings up exactly what I think you should do:
Damn Technology: Rebuilding a Powermac G5 power supply using ATX partsI

That is worth trying, it would turn any crappy G5 PSU into a real&reliable PSU. :)
(depending what donor unit you selected of course)

I bet it would score a ton of points with your wife.
