Welcome to Apple Support Communities
iLife '09 is compatible with Mac OS X Leopard or later, so you can install iLife '09 if you upgrade to Mountain Lion. However, note that not all computers with Tiger are compatible with OS X Mountain Lion. Read > http://www.apple.com/osx/specs
If you can't upgrade to Mountain Lion, upgrade to Snow Leopard > http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC573/mac-os-x-106-snow-leopard Make a backup before upgrading. After upgrading, open > Software Update, and install 10.6.8.
Note that Snow Leopard is compatible with iLife '11, so if you want, you can install a newer version. You can get iLife '11 for Mac OS X Snow Leopard at Amazon or eBay

Which would you recommend? Is Mac OS X Leopard newer? More efficient? And do I have to have the CD shipped to me or is there a way to buy and download it right from the computer?

If you want to upgrade to Mountain Lion, you have to upgrade to Snow Leopard first, so upgrade to Snow Leopard. It's cheap and it works better than Leopard. You have to order the DVD and install it from the DVD
