Highest (or Best) OS UPGRADE ??

Macintosh / G5 1.8 powerpc
March 19, 2010 at 14:56:08
Specs: OS X 10.3.9, 1 GB
(please pardon this being posted in the General Hardware forum by mistake)

I am not that familiar with Macs...but I'm needing to Upgrade a G5 1.8 PowerPC to a higher version of the OS.

It currently has OS X 10.3.9

I need to upgrade it to the highest OS workable...in order to use newer Office and Entourage software
.

Is OS X 10.5 the highest version that this hardware can handle ? (and will it run it reasonably well ?)

ALSO...will upgrading to 10.5 (and the newest version of Entourage)....eliminate that Entourage 4gb barrier.

Thanks very much

The latest OS X version you can use on a G5 is 10.5, yes. As for Entourage, from what I can tell Entourage 2004 and above don't have that 4GB limit.
