It's technically possible to run everything on one Windows machine (using VNC loopback mode), however we expect most people to run ML on Linux / Mac so that is the best supported configuration. Before Universe, I ran a modified version of Caffe in Windows along with the game on a GTX 980 and there were more than enough GPU resources for that. Running ML / ROS / other self-driving software in Linux is much more ideal though.

Thanks for this info. My gaming PC has a 7950, so I'd need to buy a Nvidia card anyways to do this. I was hoping to avoid the need to put together a second PC for ML, but I think I have enough spare parts lying around that I could do it cheaply, and I believe you about Linux being ideal over Windows.

Sounds like a 1060 should be a good start for me to play with Universe then.
