10.5 yes, 10.6 no

But it'll be so slow, you'll wish you hadn't.

Ok so would I have better luck just buying a new mac with the new software already then to try and mess with this software upgrades? I don't want it to get slow it isn't slow now it just won't show certain websites and I am guessing thats b/c of the old software it has now.

Hold on there, you have not listed any specs of the Mac, who does anyway a Mac is a Mac is it not?, it is not as easy as just slapping a DVD in and away you go:

10.4 http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1514

10.5 http://support.apple.com/kb/SP517

10.6 http://support.apple.com/kb/SP575

If you go to 10.4 with a G3 or G4 at least it should not be much noticable response wise to what you have, and at least you will have:

Safari version 4 http://support.apple.com/kb/SP552

iTunes version 8.x.x http://support.apple.com/kb/DL857

or FireFox 3.6 Browser: http://www.mozilla-europe.org/en/fi...
