    You need a more recent Intel based Mac. Not only did the CPU improve A LOT, but the GPU's did as well. Someting at least 2008 to run that I would recommend. And PPC machines don't support CoD IIRC.

    I'm pretty sure the earlier versions of call of duty supported PPC because thats what they had back then. :cool:

    It'll play Call of Duty 2, but not 4. The G5 iMac was somewhat crippled because there was no dual processor/core for it. A Core Duo iMac will be more versatile for gaming than a G5 will.

    Why did you post in the ppc section? You need a core 2 duo to meet the minimum reqs for osx. The graphics card should be ok.
