10.5.8 or in other words Leopard. Only OSX you can't use on a Power Mac G5 because it's Power PC and not Intel is Snow Leopard.

Where to get it is another matter since it's price has gone way up since Snow Leopard came out. I would check say Ebay but be sure it's 10.5 Retail and not a machine specific DVD.

With 6.5GB Ram 10.5 should run very well.

Call Apple to order Leopard retail version. Last report I saw, just a day or two ago, was the cost is $80. Get the number from the online Apple Store. You cannot order it online, or buy it in the Apple Store.
