    I was given an old Mac. I was wondering how much can I upgrade it? I tried downloading what I could. It runs on Panther right now. Could I upgrade it any more?

    Here is the info....

    Machine Model: Power Mac G5
    CPU Type: PowerPC 970 (2.2)
    Number of CPUs: 2
    CPU Speed: 1.8 GHz
    L2 Cache (per CPU) 512 KB
    Memory: 3GB
    Bus Speed: 900 MHz
    Boot ROM Version: 5.1.4f0

    I am grateful for any help....

    You can install Leopard onto that iMac. With 3Gb of ram, it will run very nicely.
