No. My wife's iMac is almost the same as yours and it runs faster with less RAM.

Shouldn't do. My specs are a lot lower than that and if anything, it's sped up a little bit.

I just installed Leopard on a PowerMac G4 1.2Ghz with 1GB of ram and it runs great. I also have it on my 2.0ghz Core Duo MacBook and my Mac Pro(see signature). I have not had any problems on any these machines and I would have to agree that Leopard seems faster on the MacBook and Mac Pro. I don't really have a comparison for the PowerMac because I installed leopard as soon as i got the computer.

I think my machine just like yours (check left) except lower ghz. Installed Leopard last night. Start to finish, took about an hour. Everything's noticeably faster.

Leopard is the smoke. Runs really fast on my iMac Core Duo 2GB. I hope it gives me the same treatment on my PPC iBook G4..
