Mac Question

Imac_17in_1
I have a Dell in the office, and at home, I have a G5 iMac — ita about 2 years old, and it is the pre-Intel line (Motorola chip), with a 1.5G of ram.

Anytime I "push it" — run a lot of apps at once, or any video or iTunes music, the internal fan spools up. It sounds like a 747 at JFK waiting for takeoff clearance. (Safari is an entirely different disaster, generating a spinning beach ball whenever I have a few windows open).

Its been like that since day one, and ts beginning to drive me a bit batty . . .

Any ideas about how easy it is to swap this out? Is this an ordeal, or can I do it myself (I’ve swapped ram and hard drives in the past)
