    For OS Snow Leopard you will need an Intel-based Apple Mac Computer capable of running OS 10.4 or 10.5. The Snow Leopard installation DVD will have the drivers needed for all compatible Mac computer graphics cards and computer components. This reminds me that software is just as important as hardware. Windows installation disks will only contain basic graphics card drivers.
