Do not think so and a Quad is not cheap and in time you may well regret not putting the cash to an Intel machine. A cheaper Mini or iMac may well be the go and will run Snow Leopard and maybe Lion depending on the specs. The day of PowerPC is over sadly and if Apple follows the usual method of dropping support for an operating system two versions old, the release of Lion may well see no more support for Leopard, the last OS a G5 can run.

Support for Tiger OS X.4 ceased with the release of Snow Leopard, and as time goes by any application, games or utilities for PowerPC architecture will get scarcer.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
