Gazebo system requirements

Hi all,

I intend to buy a new laptop and wish to run Gazebo on it (under Ubuntu). Is there an updated official webpage with system requirements?

To be more specific, I would like to know: 1. Which graphics cards should be okay? I heard that NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M is a good (and yet inexpensive) choice - can anyone confirm? 2. How much will it affect the performance of Gazebo if I run Ubuntu as a virtual machine on Windows? 3. Does the processor type really matter (i7 vs i5)? 4. What other parameters are important?

Thanks in advance!
