    I will be buying a new tower soon, (hoping for an up-date of the 4 core to a W3570 3.2G):) Till then I'll still be using OS9 and PS 5.5 for my digital photo work, but I want to use a newer 10 than 10.2 for the internet. So I went to the Apple store today to get 10.5 and I got divided opinions on wether 10.4 or 10.5 would work best on my machine. I have 2G ram, SCSI boot drives on Apple 2 channel ATTO card, Photos, data on SATA drives on a external 4 bay Firmtek box. Any chance this machine would run Aperture at a resonable speed?? just to try it out.?? I am assuming it would be best to install the new OS10 on a seperate drive/partition and re-boot to change, as I'm doing now.

    10.5 will run on it, but for aperture im not sure, for the system spec you might be better off running 10.4 it's still a capable OS, i only moved to 10.5 a few days ago so,

    Run 10.4 if you want to maximize your performance on that machine.
