Power PC G5 vs Macbook Pro Intel Core Duo

I own a Power PC with Duel 2.5 G5 processors 3GB of RAM. I also own a Mac Book Pro 2.33 GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo Processors with 4GB of RAM.

I am unable to upgrade my ram on my laptop to better use certain features on Apple Motion. I can upgrade my RAM on my POWER PC G5 to 8GB if need be.

My question is, is a POWER PC G5 with 8GB of RAM a faster Computer than a MACBOOK Pro with an Intel Core Duo Processor? I would like to know so that if I invest in more RAM for the G5 I'm not wasting my money. Thanks.

An Intel based Mac is always faster then a PowerPC based Mac. Unless one is limited by an after market part.
