I ran Tiger on a G4 from 1999 with a 450mhz processor and 640MB of RAM. You should be fine. Just remember to backup everything before you do.

Here are the system requirements.

And rather than upgrade do an Archive and Install. All your Panther applications etc will be saved in a folder named Old System.
