    I did it on two of mine, from 10.6.2 to 10.6.4, but not the same hardware as in yours.
    It runs better with 10.6.4 than 10.6.2.

    What cpu and kernel are you using?

    I did it on mine as well. I would suggest backing up ur kernel and kext files in extensions and extra and then restoring them.

    Your CPU should be able to take the vanilla kernel. But just to be safe, as asj2583 suggested, backup your kernel, all of your kexts along with all files in /E.

    I've just updated my AMD system to 10.6.4 directly from Apple without those steps and it worked. Of course, I do have a backup system (just in case it failed and needed repair after updating). Also the apple.Boot.plist was modified to make sure that 10.6.4 updating files won't delete the current system kernel.

    And one other 10.6.2 SnowOSX system is up to 10.6.4 successfully as well. It has Intel CPU so that made it easier.
    Overall, through several system updates, 10.6.4 seems to perform better than 10.6.2.
    And finally, I got my onboard sound fixed, after so many KP's and kexts.
    Cheers
