eBay is one place to look, but I'm almost positive the connectors are
NOT standard ATX, and unfortunately the part is different depending on
which exact G4 you have.
I replaced a supply on a G4 about a year ago, and the job was easy
(Apple even supplies the repair info on their site, including voltage
readings to check). I ordered the part from http://www.welovemacs.com/
-- it cost about $200 including shipping.
But before you do anything else, check to see if there's any
possibility there's AppleCare on the unit. I think you can call Apple
with the serial number and ask. The woman whose supply I replaced was
kicking herself for not spending a few bucks on AppleCare because hers
was just a few months out of the standard warranty.
