    10.5.8 is the latest version of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_OS_X_Leopard
    If you want, and can, go higher you need to at least buy Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard via Amazon or eBay and hopefully get a good deal, as many copies cost up to 90 USD now.
    But if you have an older Mac, from 2005 or earlier, 10.5.8 will be the highest version you can install: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple's_transition_to_Intel_processors
