Check out these two places which offer more reasonable logic board repairs.
If you don't mind packing it up and sending it, there are several places with good reputations that will be more reasonable. They will replace the bad caps, and maybe even better this way, since the logic board replacements from Apple are very unreliable.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 26, 2010 10:33 AM (in response to davidw)Hey David,
neighborhood of $500
That's a pretty expensive neighborhood:
I had a client of mine send his there. It was a 20" ALS and it's been running great for 2 years not. Only thing was the power supply died and I replaced it for $80.
this machine would never be able to be upgraded from Tiger
Huh!? All mine are running Leopard just fine.
90 day warranty
Six month warranty at DT&T.
recycle the rest
Ohh before you did that I'd hope you consider donating it:
Otherwise that DT&T quote is close to half the MacAuthority price.
