Using Migration Assistant and A Cloned External Drive...Possible?

I am considering upgrading my 20" G5 iMac to a 24" Intel iMac. Normally I would use the Apple Migration Assistant to move stuff from the old to new Mac. Unfortunately, the G5 iMac Firewire ports aren't functioning at the moment; I will be getting a motherboard replacement via AppleCare before I sell it.

My understanding is that the Firewire ports must be used with Migration Assistant. Can I use Migration Assistant with the new iMac connected to an external drive containing a clone of the G5 iMac and move the data from the external drive?
