ASUS P5LD2 SE Motherboard
Intel Pentium D930 CPU
ASUS EN7600GS Silent Video Card (Nvidia GeForce 7600GS Chipset)
4x512 Mb DDR2 DualChannel RAM

Works slowly when more than 100.000 faces in scene... (2.45)
Had no such problem in previous versions.

Except for this , flawlessly :)

* Motherboard: Asus A8N5X nForce4 Chipset SATA RAID PCIE (no raid enabled)
* Graphics card (manufacturer, chipset, etc.): ATI technologies INC, ATI Radeon x300 SE 128MB 16x PCI express
* Memory: 512MB PC3200 400MHz DDRMEMORY
* Driver/OpenGL version: unknown (preconfigured suse driver)
* Functionality or problems (please note the Blender version if functionality differs between versions):none
* Any additional notes: runs very well with 2.42a, have not tried other versions but I suspect the same of them. rendering can sometimes be slow.

Operating System: Windows xp Pro 32 SP2
Motherboard: Asus P5N-T Deluxe, SLI Ready
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4 GHz
GPU: 2x Nvidia GeForce 8800GT 512 Mb
Memory: 4Gb

Blender 2.45 runs fine with the GPUs set to SLI Disabled.
Running Blender 2.45 with SLI enabled causes the computer to freeze, requiring restart.

* Operating system - Vista 32 Home Premium SP1
* Graphics card - EVGA 9800 GX2
* System - Q6600 2.4 GHz, 790i Ultra, 4 GB 1333 RAM
* Driver/OpenGL version - nvidia driver 174.74
* Functionality or problems - Blender 2.45 user interface runs at 2-5 FPS according to FRAPS. Any UI interaction (like dragging the default cube) is sluggish.

* Additional notes - other graphically intense programs cause nvlddmkm crashes or total system lockups, so driver is suspect (though no other program runs as slow as Blender).

I have some problems with the blender, i have blender 2.7 .

I had a problem when i treid to make a high resoluiton picture, when i pushed the render curent frame, and i got an error report.

I think its because of the processor, they say its a low CO Math processor or what.

Functionality or problems
Dont get bored, start living, feel the lifes positive part :)

You mean Blender 2.47 and when rendering high res pictures you might run out of memory. What was the reso you were trying to render at? Lots of geometry? Large textures? Complex compo setup?

Operating system: Gentoo Linux, running ~arch (unstable/testing) up to date as of October 2008
Graphics card: Club 3D RadeonHD 4850
Driver/OpenGL version: AMD Catalyst 8.9/OpenGL 2.1.7979
Functionality: Blender works fine, except that initially when Blender is launched the desktop flashes black, and certain things (Gnome panels etc.) outside the Blender window aren't redrawn (they remain black). Not a major showstopper however, switching to console and back to X forces everything to redraw and will make it all okay again. Additionally there's some flickering inside Blender between the window borders at times, but again nothing major and it doesn't affect usability.
Additional notes: This is with Xorg-server 1.4.2 and Linux kernel (with gentoo patches) 2.6.25
