See the README for the latest system requirements.

As of v.0.4.8, FreeOrion requires an OpenGL 2.1 capable graphic card and a display with a minimum resolution of at least 800x600.

FreeOrion requires at least Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or later, Mac OSX 10.9 or later or any reasonably recent Linux distribution on x86 compatible processors.
