iMac G5 how to make it run faster?

Hi guys, I currently have a 17in iMac G5 with a 1.9GHZ and built in iSight still running tiger.

Last year I upgraded the ram with a 2gb stick from kingston, and its now showing 2.5gb of ram.

Would I see much benefit upgrading to leopard? Is there anything you guys recommend i run/do to make it run faster, not that its running bad. Also I lost my Tiger recovery disc, what should I do? Can i burn a new one or use someone else's?

thanks alot, I sound like a total noob haha.

peace

I think you may even see a performance decrease upgrading to leopard, so I wouldn't go that route. But perhaps a fresh install of Tiger if it hasn't been done since you bought it.
