I think that you can,but keep in mind this guide for the MDD models. Read this article in

MDD Owner Guide on upgrading to Dual 1.42GHz CPU module

the main problem for upgrade the Processor is the mother board for G4 PPC MDD models and could be the same issue for G5 PPC. But if you going to replace a faster one for a slow, should be OK!
