I have a Gigabit Ethernet with dual 450MHz processors and a gig of ram. I have heard that i can get it on leopard even though it is unsupported. Should i put in a 1GHz ppc processor that i have in a bad machine, and upgrade or stay with a ridiculous liger setup. All that i need it for is iTunes 10 for my iPod touch.
I really dont know much about this..... please help

To install Leopard on an unsupported system, you can use LeopardAssist.

To be honest, in my experience, the processor doesn't make a HUGE amount of difference, it's the RAM that bites. Get yourself at least 1gb RAM and then install Leopard. Considering it's a dual 450 as well it won't be too bad at all.

You have other methods on the FAQ on my sig.
I tried it with 1.75Gb Ram when I had the 400MHz, it simply doesn't worth the waste of time...But you have dual 450MHz it can be different, but I guess it wouldn't be "that different"

My coworker is running Leopard on a G4/450 AGP with 1GB ram. It's a little slow, but she's still able to produce with XPress, InDesign, Acrobat, Photoshop, Illustrator, Firefox, Word and Entourage running at the same time.
