If your drive is this slow, I'd start with checking theTo make sure the caps witharen't bad, get an ESR meter. Good ESR meters have a approximate tolerance list on them. However, do not rely on this. Getmeter and check the datasheetcaps. You may need to scrape the conformal coating off of the board but it is possible to access the leads for this information. A reference chart will never be as accurate as say, a datasheet with the real numberscaps. If you can, desolder the caps and check them off of the board; bad caps can screw up in-circuit reading.

If newyou replace the caps don't help then replaceand it's slow, the drive. These are old enough to warrant new drives. You should replace them everyhard drive is failing. As a general rule, these drives fail in 4-5 years, generally. However, manyyears. Many drives live longer then this. It's just afterpast this, but there's no guarantee how long it will last beyond 4-5 years, they can get unreliableyears. It's a good practice. Youpractice to retire older drives with higher hours before they fail, since you can use them inmove the drive to another system that's less crucial machinescritical.

If you still have problems then I would give up on itcontinue having problems, just replace the system. The iMac G5 is a piece of crapcrap as a whole. They killare prone to bad caps, get hotter then the sunexcessive temperatures and have display problems leftTAB problems. All of this is compounded by a TDMS panel, which is nearly impossible to find and right relatingdifficult to replace since the TAB on the panels. To make matters worse Apple used TDMS. You can't easily swap these like LVDS with amachine looks for an Apple display EDID injector. You have to buy the crappy Apple panel(without an injector). Apple stops makinghas stopped selling parts for these after 5 years. The G5 iMac was garbage from the beginningmachines years ago, so whatever is left is generally on life support and overis prone to CCFL backlight burnouts or higher TAB failure rates.
From
the yearsbeginning, the rest that made it after 5 years are showing their true colors. This machineG5 iMac was never very good. They were fine early on but degraded quickly as they aged. ANY surviving machines will becomefail due to caps or display issues, given a rabbit hole if you tryfew more years. I'd get a Intel iMac and repair it further. Cutcut your losses and move onon this one.

LEAVE THE BOARD IN ONE PLACE AND DO NOT TOUCH TILL COOL!!!

If replacing the data cable did no justice, sadly the SATA controller is likely dead at this point and this is built in to the logicboard, you will have to buy a logicboard, if this is why, the board's worthless and I suggest trying this before you buy a whole new board
Take the board out, chip side up and put tinfoil balls under it on a cookie sheet
Preheat the over for 350-385 for 5 minutes and put the board in and keep a timer
Pull the board out CAREFULLY, the solder's molten and something may fall out, remove it slowly
When cooled, put it in the computer and see what happens
CLEAN THE OVEN REAL GOOD AFTER!

Usually, when a drive slows down this much, it is failing
 
Try reinstalling the OS clean first, but back up your data first
 
If it sill does this, time for a harddrive, however, your replacement drive may be bad too, exchange it and try again

I was doing a little eBay hunting and found the data and power cables
 
Here is the data cable

Power(VERY unlikely you need it, only if needed!)

Now remove the display assembly and find these connectors and remove these ONLY
