PowerMac 8.2, PowerPC G5 (3.1), CPU seed 2 GHz, Memory 512 MB--what else?

Well, you can upgrade into Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard but not to 10.6 Snow Leopard, because Snow Leopard requires an Intel Machine. Just buy the Leopard Retail Discs, put it into your Mac and follow the onscreen instructions to upgrade. You can buy Leopard Retail Discs from online stores like ebay, etc

Buy Leopard from here ( sample link) :

I'd also recommend you to upgrade RAM to 1GB or more for good performance. You can buy RAM from here

(Also You must have 10+ GB Free Space and DVD drive to install Leopard)
