Which hardware/OS do you use to play RPGs? I'm asking purely as an indie dev that is curious which systems should he support. I'm asking only about desktop/laptop computers (no mobiles, etc).

* Windows
* Mac
* Mac (but I don't mind to doubleboot as Windows)
* Linux 32bit
* Linux 64bit (without the capability to run 32 bit applications)

- Win XP SP3 32bit, 2 GB RAM
- have an "virtual PC" on my "gaming PC" which is able to run DOS, too
- I have Ubuntu as well, but I don't use it anymore right now

- AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 640 Processor (4 CPUs), ~3.0GHz
- 8 Gb RAM
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560
- screen resolution is set on the one recommended for my cheap monitor: 1680x1050
- noname onboard sound chip (if needed I'll open the case to see which one is it)
- connected on the internet router in another room through this thing that in fact has some abnormal long range:
http://www.airlive.com/product/WL-1700USB
- OS: Win7 64bit

Dunno if it matters… No floppy drive (I use USB external one when needed), some old LG DVD-RAM drive that has problems with opening it lately is in the machine for years already, HDD is 320 Gb.
And also the machine is full of dust inside, plus covered with the "film" from the smoke (I'm a passionate smoker and I smoke like a chimney).

If you happen to use laptops or desktop without dedicated GPU card please post if possible what GPU is on the motherboard (or to be more precise if you happen to have the dreadful Intel Integrated Graphics card) and what is the highest OpenGL version supported by your computer.
