Depends. Find out the versions of the apps you have...then see if they are compatible with Mavericks.

I don't think that CS5 should have any trouble. You may need to check on the "i-apps" & numbers you mentioned.

Subject the iMac being model 7.1 There were earlier 20" model, iMac 4.1 and 5.1 which cannot run Mavericks. If you do not know the model number, go to About this Mac > More Info > System Report and the top Hardware section will show the model number.

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!

Beginning with OS 10.7 you can't run Power PC software. If you are running any of that software and it is critical to you it would need to be upgraded. Here's one way to identify Power PC software. Follow the directions there. Anything listed as PowerPC won't run.

Definitely no problem with Adobe CS5: I bought mine in 2010, and installed on a [then] new MBP17 with 10.6, later upgraded to 10.7, and recently - Mavericks.

Just make sure that, all CS apps/components are up-to-date.

There was a problem with Acrobat Pro update, turns out Adobe Updater wanted the original install DVD, but didn't ask for it directly, telling some porkies, about wrong install location, instead. Once I put the DVD in the [now external] optical drive, it all went ahead smoothly.

I wouldn't worry about particular versions, especially for Apple's own apps.

Adobe update process is notoriously cumbersome and generally horrendous, so, unless it's a critical security update, like say, Acrobat Pro 9.5.5, you might as well leave it be, if there are no issues. For what it worth, my CS5 shows:

Photoshop 12.0.4; Illustrator 15.0.2; InDesign 7.0.4; Acrobat Pro 9.5.5 - the other numerous bits of CS5 I hardly ever use ...
