What should you have? At your job? A mac pro probably.

Realistically speaking:
From the specs of your machine it sounds like you have a quicksilver model.I'm thinking that a 733MHz processor may get bogged down during intensive work. IMO any powerpc processor over 1GHz should be adequate for most tasks. However a g5 would obviously be better than a g4. G5's are also still very expensive. On ebay the cheapest g5's usually go for around $800 +.

Powermac Info and Specs LInks
Check out the links in this thread for some in depth info on powermacs. It helped me choose the right powermac when i was looking for a new mac. My g4MDD 1.25GHz cost $525.

Hope this helps and good luck convincing your boss
