You can upgrade your Mac OS X into Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6) if your Mac meets the following requirements :

Mac OS X 10.6.x Snow Leopard System Requirements
  • Mac computer with an Intel processor
  • 1GB of memory
  • 5GB of available disk space
  • DVD drive for installation
Mac OS X 10.5.x Leopard System Requirements
  • A Mac computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or Power PC G4 (867 MHz or faster) processor
  • 512 MB memory or more

If you want to upgrade into Mac OS X 10.5.x Leopard, buy the Leopard Retail/Upgrade disks.If you want to upgrade directly into Mac OS X Snow Leopard, buy the Snow Leopard Retail Disks
