I have a late model G5, Dual 2GHz M9455LL/A which has OS10.4.11and would like to upgrade to the newest one but i think im at my limit. Dosen't have the intel chip of course. 10.5 says for the specks it needs it but other info says differently.

thanks for any help

Nope, you can go up to Leopard (10.5).

I just put 10.5 on a PowerBook G4. You'll be more than alright.
